City of Providence Press Release:

Providence Mayor Angel Taveras joined together with organizations from across the city today to kick off Providence’s 375th anniversary celebration, a five-month long series of events and activities marking Roger Williams founding of the city.

The celebration includes the participation of over 40 arts and tourism organizations and consists of over 200 individual events. The celebration is a partnership between the City Department of Art, Culture + Tourism, The Providence Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Roger Williams National Park Services. The events take place now through October and culminate in a gala celebration in the fall.

Following the speaking program, the Official Guide to Providence 375 was unveiled. The guide includes a full schedule of events, fun facts and stories written by local experts. The guide will be inserted into June’s Providence Monthly and can be picked up at the PWCVB Visitor’s Center in the Rhode Island Convention Center Rotunda. Additional copies will be distributed at events during the summer months.
