Summer is here and so is the 2nd Annual Summer Solstice Celebration on the Plaza!
Help us kick off the season with an all day celebration in Greater Kennedy Plaza – with special musical guests Family of the Year, Gentlemen Hall and The Silks, an outdoor beer garden, food trucks and fun family programming and more!
Come early and stay late- there is something for everyone during this day of fun. This event runs from 3PM-10PM and is FREE, all ages and open the public!
3pm-6pm – Family Fun!
Grab the kids and head to Burnside Park early. You will find amazing balloon sculptures, interactive activities, and musical performances with Providence Children’s Museum, the Rhode Island Museum of Science & Art, and Girls Rock RI.
Feeling active? Avenue Sandwhich takes over the rink at 4PM running street-style skating, graffiti art and live DJing. And don’t miss afternoon performances by Jump! Dance Company, Girls Rock RI, and Providence Monthly’s “Most Musical Act” the Extraordinary Rendition Band in Burnside Park.
6pm-10pm Concert + Beer Garden!
At 6pm grab a refreshing drink and relax in the Trinity Beer Garden while enjoying an evening concert in Bunside Park! Blend the high-handed anthemic choruses of the Killers with the retro synth melodies of MGMT and you’ve got our 7pm band, Boston’s Gentlemen Hall. At 8pm Southern California indie rockers Family of the Year take the stage before local heroes The Silks close the night out beginning at 9pm.
Come hungry. Delicious treats will be available throughout evening from Sprout, Mama Kim’s Korean BBQ, Rocket Fine Street Food, Panino Express, Munchies, Like No Udder, PVD Pudding Pops + more!
