It’s only February and the PWCVB already has so many great things in the pipeline. Before you know it, we'll all be complaining about the heat, but let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. Even this part of winter can be lovely — after all, we have Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick's Day to look forward to!

Read on to find out what's new at the PWCVB and with you, our partners. 


Valentine's Day

Chilly temps do not mean the city hibernates in the winter. There's still lots going on in Providence and the PWCVB is busy promoting things to do for Valentine's Day and February Vacation, along with where to find some Winter Fun in general. Our Valentine's Contest is running now and is giving away an overnight at the Omni Providence, a pair of VIP Director's Circle tickets to Festival Ballet's "Mirrors" at The VETS and a gift card to CAV.

The Spring/Summer issue of the PWCVB's visitors guide, GoProvidencewill be on the shelves April 1. GoProvidence, the primary fulfillment piece of the PWCVB, is produced twice a year and is in the hands of thousands of visitors, meeting planners and convention attendees. Don't miss out on the chance to advertise your business to these potential customers. Click here to book your ad now or contact Christine Phillips at

Be sure to add your events to our online calendar. If you have any questions or difficulties please reach out to Digital Media Manager Nick Millard.  


Providence Children's Film Festivalskyline

Sick of playing darts? R1 Indoor Karting is now featuring axe throwing! Ten lanes are open, and not to worry, all sessions are led by trained and engaging axe-throwing coaches. Yes, you can book online. No, you cannot bring your own axe.

Mark your calendars for the 10th Annual Providence Children's Film Festival, running Feb. 15–28 at locations throughout the city. Take your little film aficionado in the making to a screening or two.

Not only is there the newly opened and already popular restaurant at Waterplace Park, Dine with Skyline, but Skyline at Waterplace will be holding “Skyline Karaoke Idol” on Wednesdays, beginning Feb. 6 at 9 p.m. Music will be provided by WRIK Entertainment, and the host of the series is none other than RI local karaoke celebrity Mary Halsey!
