The Arcade Providence is again host to a number of fall events, from historically minded to vintage-devoted to downright weird!
Beginning Friday, Oct. 14, the Rhode Island Historical Society celebrates the recent digitization of the Arcade's original architectural drawings with a kick-off party at the Arcade. The event is free, but registration is required by clicking here.
Coming Saturday, Oct. 22 is the semi-annual Urban Vintage Bazaar. More than 20 vendors are booked for this event, which is free and takes place rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It features men's and women's vintage clothing and accessories, jewelry, boots, coats, housewares, linens, mid-century, industrial goods, kitchenalia, vintage cameras, ephemera, vintage toys and games, vinyl records, and so much more! Parking is available in the lot beside the Arcade for $6 all day.
Finally, on Sunday, Oct. 30, the Tour de Tentacle arrives at the Arcade. A collaboration between the Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition, Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council and Confluence Placemaking, the event begins at 2 p.m. and culminates near the Industrial Trust Tower at dusk for a dark cosmic reckoning. There will be tentacles. There will be bikes (bring your own, plus helmet). And, there will be beer (at the end). Registration for this event is required.
