WaterFire Providence Events Schedule 2023

WaterFire Providence proudly announces the 2023 WaterFire season which currently includes seven (7) full lightings and five (5) partial lightings. The 2023 season started with a pre-season lighting on April 1, 2023, supported by the United Way of Rhode Island followed by the first-ever WaterFire Day on April 19, 2023, in Memorial Park.

WaterFire favorites like the Clear Currents Community Paddling Night and the Flames of Hope Celebration supported by The Gloria Gemma Foundation will return in August and September.

Notably, WaterFire will also partner with PVDFest, an annual arts and culture festival held in downtown Providence, for a full lighting on September 9, 2023. Additionally, the season will conclude with WaterFire’s Salute to Veterans on November 4, 2023, a full lighting to honor and recognize the contributions of veterans.

WaterFire takes place in downtown Providence, Rhode Island, along Memorial Boulevard and the Providence and Woonasquatucket Rivers. It is right at the heart of downtown and runs for just over one-half mile from Providence Place to the Crawford Street Bridge.

  1. If you have not been to Waterfire and have the chance to go, do so! It’s a bonfire on the river and it is a happening. More than just the bonfire.
