Happy March! We may all be counting down the days to beach bags and sunscreen, but in the meantime enjoy the winter weather. There's still lots of fun to be had this time of year. Plus, it gives us time to prepare for things like Easter and graduation season. With spring about to bloom and summer mere months away, be sure to let us know what you have planned. We love to show off this incredible city — and your business!

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


Annual Report FY2018 - 2

The PWCVB's Annual Report is available on our website here. Be sure to take a look at this recap of FY2018.

GoProvidence's seasonal web pages are a big draw to our site. St. Patrick's Day, St. Joseph's Day, and where to find some winter fun in Cool Providence, are all being promoted through dedicated pages and blogs. Be sure to check out our Winter Fun Contest, giving away Providence Bruins tickets, season passes for the Super Fun Activities Club, and a gift card to Backstage Kitchen & Bar.

We'll soon be marketing April School Vacation, Easter and Mother's Day, so let us know if you are doing anything special for upcoming holidays.  

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.

As many of you know, Newport Restaurant Group purchased Iron Works Tavern in 2018. It will be reopening by May, following renovations, and the menu will feature rustic, comfort food. 

Many nearby restaurants are beginning to roll out their spring menus. It’s time to brave the cold and get out there and “think spring.”

As a reminder, don't forget to join the PWCVB Partner Facebook page here.
