After being extended for two more weeks, tonight is for real the last Burnside Park Beer Garden Music Series event of the year.

We’ve had a great season featuring a wide array of local music–clearly Providence has a wealth of talent! We have one more night for you on Thursday, Sept 19.

Grupo Sazon, is an amazing Latin band featuring master percussionist Jesus Andujar. This high energy band, with Latin and Cuban influences, have lit up the WaterFire stage twice this season to rave reviews! What a great way to end the park series and usher in Fall.

As always, relax before the show at the Trinity Brewhouse + Revival beer garden – serving locally brewed beer and wine starting at 4:30PM (music at 5:30PM)! Lawn games + food truck fare throughout – including Fancheezical, Lotus Pepper, Noble Knots, Panino Express + Like No Udder.

Burnside Park Beer Garden Music Series is a go for this evening

many-beers-beer-garden

Careful, if you ask me to hold your beer, I might drink it.

Slight change of plans. The band will be playing and the beer will be flowing, but it will be taking place inside at Trinity Brewhouse, see you there!

There is a chance of a passing shower this afternoon, but the surprising fall-like chill in the air makes it a perfect evening to drink beers in the park and listen to great music.

Come on out and hear the Criss Cross Orchestra perform in Burnside Park, 4:30pm-7pm. See you there!

bandaloop2-catossa-soltaniIn the blink of an eye, Providence has shed its summer skin. Autumn begins our count-down to 200+ artists and performers gathering for FirstWorks Festival: On the Plaza on Saturday, September 29th from 4-11pm. In a few short weeks, Greater Kennedy Plaza, Providence’s historic and transit hub, will be a vast urban stage set for a kinetic extravaganza!

Come to see, hear, dance, and savour — this is a festival where civic and celebratory go hand-in-hand. Thanks to a “creative placemaking” grant from the NEA, this year’s festival culminates months of art projects and the re-opening of Burnside Park with an astonishing line-up of artists.

Street opera staged on a retro-fitted monster truck? We’ve got it. Rappelling dancers dangling 30-stories in the air? Why not? Bhangra-funk and swinging salsa from the five boroughs? Oh yes…

See what happens when FirstWorks Festival guest artists mash-up with Ocean State stars, including Waterfire, the Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra, Brown/Trinity MFA Programs and Festival Ballet Providence to light up the heart of Providence!
