PVDFest – June 6 – June 9, 2019

PVDFest 2019 is a free, four day festival in downtown Providence on June 6–June 9.

For the fifth year, Mayor Jorge O. Elorza, the City of Providence’s Department of Art, Culture+ Tourism and founding partner FirstWorks will host PVDFest, Providence’s signature art festival, June 6-9, 2019. Providence’s world-renowned art, culture and culinary community join forces with artists from around the corner and across the globe to deliver a once in a lifetime experience. Live music, dance, food, and visual art installations transform the city in a four-day, multi-arts take-over of public spaces, parks and outdoor stages in the heart of Providence, Rhode Island.

PublicArt@PVDFest

The temporary public art projects at PVDFest 2019  will announce the start of PVDFest activities and will remain on site throughout Summer 2019. These new and original works should enhance pedestrian-level interactions between festival goers and Providence residents and visitors by making the streetscape more vibrant, interactive and playful, surprising, or beautiful.  Projects will be selected as the most appropriate to the site with the caveat that the installations will be on view one week prior to, during, and for up to four months after PVDFest 2019.

Food@PVDFest

Providence, RI has one of the fastest growing award-winning culinary scenes in the country, cementing Providence as an international tourist destination.  The PVDFest Food Village strives to showcase the culinary scene in Providence by providing restaurants and food trucks the opportunity to sample and serve their signature dishes to a large, diverse audience.
