Providence’s epic WaterFire is an experience that engages all of the senses. You see the fires floating atop the river, smell the wood burning, hear the crackling of the flames… all while tasting treats from local restaurants that set up for the event. Created by local artist Barnaby Evans, WaterFire is an award-winning art installation that brings the entire city out to play.
The 2021 WaterFire season, will include four full lightings and five partial lightings. The season will open with a full lighting thanking COVID Heroes on Saturday, September 4th (Labor Day Weekend). Other lightings will include WaterFire’s 25th Birthday Celebration; a BIPOC Arts, Technology and Business Night; WaterFire Salute to Veterans, and the return of a WaterFire for the Holidays in December.
