PVDFest 2016

PVDFest is Art, Culture + Tourism’s signature event and a collaboration with FirstWorks

Live music, dance, food, and visual art installations transform the city in a four-day, multi-arts take-over of public spaces, parks, and outdoor stages in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island.

Artists from across the globe join with the Ocean State’s finest for a free outdoor party that inspires the soul, fires the spirit, and has thousands dancing in the streets. The cityscape pulses with cultural energy and urban spectacle in this Creative Capital celebration.
