WaterFire Groundbreaking - 2016 Annual Meeting

WaterFire has a brand new home and art center scheduled to open in March 2017. The building (on Valley Street in Providence) was originally constructed in 1929 as a US Rubber Corporation storage facility. It will be WaterFire’s first permanent home in the community, as well as a multiuse arts center that will host events, performances and exhibitions. It will also house a visitor and education center that will allow WaterFire to engage the public.

Sunday brunch just got a little more lively in Providence. Head to the Hot Club for Food Truck Sunday Funday, which is set up in their lot each Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Enjoy great food, local beer, live music and boat rides from the Providence River Boat Company.
