PVDFest is the signature cultural event for the Creative Capital, Providence, and the premiere international arts festival in Rhode Island.

PVDFest transforms the city center into a world-class performance stage, cutting edge art gallery, and culturally diverse block party. FirstWorks is the Founding Creative Partner and driving force, working with the City of Providence and four lead local collaborators—Columbus Theatre, Avenue Concept, Dean Hotel, and Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy, along with over 20 entities from the arts, business, and civic sectors—to produce this large-scale placemaking event from June 2-5, 2016. The four-day festival will culminate on Saturday, June 4 with a free celebration that features over a dozen sound stages showcasing local, regional and international performers, a parade, and hundreds of participating artists, vendors and community organizations.
