On Thursday, May 16, we’re taking you back in time to glory days of the Narragansett Race Track for our Spring Forward … Think Back benefit celebration, Horsing Around: Rhode Island’s Horse Racing Heyday.

Our dreamland of the past will be held on the grounds of the Aldrich House, featuring derby-inspired fare from some of Rhode Island’s favorite caterers, cocktails, Narragansett Race Track photography exhibit, video footage, games, photo booth, and plenty of surprises.

All tickets include food, drink, exhibit entry, and entertainment. Patron tickets are $150/$125 for members and include the 5:30pm VIP reception with prosecco, small bites, sneak peeks, and exclusive access. General admission is just $50 per person, with a 6:30pm entrance.

All proceeds benefit the RIHS’s mission to “Remember, Interpret, Honor, and Share” Rhode Island’s history through our events, exhibits, programs, educational initiatives, publications, and collaborations.

Please note: A week prior to Spring Forward, on Thursday, May 2, we’ll host a panel of enthusiasts, collectors, local industry leaders, and historians of Rhode Island’s rich legacy of amusement parks, arcades, and resorts. FREE registration here!
