2018 WaterFire Providence

Saturday 8/25, 7:30pm, 100 Canal Walk Providence, Rhode Island

Come to enjoy yourself, to relax, and to discover a remarkable new urban experience in a fascinating modern city. WaterFire is presented for free, but we need your donations to keep the fires burning! Dress up, dress casual, or dress festively. WaterFire is a celebration of community and beauty. Everyone is welcome, and we encourage you to become a part of the event. There is an ever-changing, eclectic music program all along the rivers. Fire marshal regulations do not permit folding chairs to be set up on any of the riverwalks to assure safe passage for all of our visitors. WaterFire is an event to be explored and savored on foot as you wander around to discover its many surprises, leave your chairs in the car and start exploring all that our event has to offer.
