Weekend Look Ahead: August 7th- August 9th

Post by Team Dockwa - Published on 8/6/15 11:58 AM
This weekend is sure to be filled with regattas, concerts, markets, and more! Learn about exciting events taking place this weekend in Rhode Island, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Maine, and Boston.

Rhode Island




Head to Portsmouth this Saturday for two unique summer specials. First, if you haven’t checked out a Polo Match, hosted by the Newport International Polo Series, it is a must. The USA versus Brazil match starts at 5:00pm, but get there early to relax in the sun and tailgate! Bring a picnic and your beverage of choice, and cheer on the team! A New England Lobster Bake will follow the match!



If stomping the divots isn’t your thing, then head to the Greenvale Vineyards for Live Jazz Saturdays. From 1:00pm-4:00pm, enjoy a glass (or two) of wine, and listen to the live music. Greenvale Vineyard offers fantastic wine, and a great atmosphere for a sunny summer afternoon. Admission is $3, and tastings are $12 (Wine is also sold by the glass).
