PRONK! (the Providence HONK! Festival) presents a heartfelt antidote to mainstream culture by inviting people from all walks of life to come together for a day set aside for the celebration of music. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind cacophonous street celebration with out of town brass bands! This is a street intervention like no other, with outfits and misfits from Rhode Island and beyond – musicians, artists, activists, makers, and groups from around Providence – taking over South Water Street as part of the Providence HONK Parade.
