Nikkomo is an annual Narragansett celebration started by the Nipmuc and is celebrated by some southern New England tribes.  The gathering involves gift giving signifying the days in which those who had the most gave to those who had the least. In doing so, the entire community was cared for equally.
 
Refreshments will be provided and everyone is welcome.  The event is wheelchair accessible.
