What is Waterfire?

  • A series of 100 bonfi res that blaze just above the surface of the recently relocated rivers that run through the middle of downtown Providence;

  • An award-winning installation that illuminates twothirds of a mile of urban riverside promenades and parks, creating an evening art-happening where residents and visitors alike gather to view the fi res and performance art along the rivers' edge;

  • A free summer event that has captured the imagination of hundreds of thousands of people, transforming downtown Providence and enlivening the nights of the state's capital city;

  • A powerful work of art and a moving symbol of Providence's renaissance.
