The Creative Capital comes alive for a free four-day festival
that celebrates artists from all corners of the globe.

Produced by the City of Providence Department of Art, Culture + Tourism, together with Firstworks, PVDFest (June 11-14, 2020) will turn the Creative Capital into a multi-disciplinary stage. Providence’s world-renowned art, culture and culinary community join forces with artists from across the country and 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.
