Located on the edge of Mount Hope Bay in Bristol, RI, Mount Hope Farm is one of Rhode
Island’s last great country estates. It includes The Governor Bradford Inn, built
in 1745, and acres of pristine farmland with spectacular water views. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Farm is a sanctuary for walking or jogging. It is an enchanted location for a wedding, corporate retreat, weekend getaway or special event like the 2012 Mount Hope Artisan Fair.
The Mount Hope Trust, a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation, operates Mount Hope Farm and provides the public, visitors and guest with an extraordinary opportunity to explore and enjoy five centuries of
American history. Mount Hope Farm is convenient to Newport, RI, the Massachusetts south coast, Providence and Boston.
This event will be held rain or shine at Mount Hope Farm in Bristol, RI. There will be ample free parking.
