SEPTEMBER 6–7, 2024

PVDFest is Providence’s signature outdoor arts festival. Each year, the city comes alive for a two-day festival celebrating arts, culture, food and more from around the globe and our very own backyard. Downtown Providence will host world-class performance stages, cutting-edge art, savory food options and much more. PVDFest is brought to you by the City of Providence and FirstWorks.

Returning to Downtown this year, the festival promises live music and art installations from local and international artists representing a variety of genres and disciplines. Craft markets and global food vendors will showcase the eclectic creativity of the capital city. 

Festival programming and schedules will be updated as more information becomes available. Sign up for the GoPVD e-newsletter to get details delivered right to your inbox!
