Our 9th Annual Cars in the Park will take place on August 19th, 2023 in Whitin Park. Register your vehicle or come as a spectator and be a part of a community-favorite event that includes classic cars, food trucks, raffles, and vendors!

Our annual Benefit Golf Tournament will be held on August 28th, 2023. Enjoy a day of golf to be followed by a delicious lunch. The tournament will also include a putting contest, raffles, giveaways, and more.

The 22nd Annual Greenway Challenge will take place on September 30th, 2023 ! The Greenway Challenge, one of New England’s premier adventure races, sees participants run, bike, and paddle their way through the beautiful Blackstone River Valley. Race with a team or take the ultimate solo challenge!

Come to our Halloween Haunted Swim and Roller Skating Costume Party on October 20th, 2023 . Our annual favorites include a kids open swim with Halloween music and pool toys and a kids open skate with Halloween costumes and music. Concessions will be sold as well. The WCC’s Nightmare on Main Street event will return this year on October 27th, 2023! Whitin Park will be transformed into a spooky outdoor haunted trail for middle school ages and up. There will also be food trucks and goodie bags.

On November 16th, 2023, we will hold a WCC Appreciation Day as a thank you event for our volunteers, partners, donors, members, and staff. Without everyone’s support, the WCC would not be celebrating this milestone!

We will round out our year with Santa, of course! Santa’s Coming is a festive event that will be held on December 9th, 2023. Come to the WCC gymnasium to meet Santa, participate in fun holiday activities, enjoy a bake sale, and more! This is a free event provided by the Blackstone Valley Children’s Place.

More information about all of these events will be shared throughout the year. If you are interested in participating as a vendor or sponsor of any of these events, please reach out to
