InDowncity is bringing back the popular event series “Open Air Saturdays” to downtown Providence! From May through October, come enjoy programming across the city on the first Saturday of each month. The family-friendly event will run from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on May 7, June 4, July 2, Aug. 6, Sept. 3, and Oct. 1. (And we absolutely cannot wait!)
Each Open Air Saturdays event will feature live music performances, a rotating line-up of food trucks, two beer gardens, two marketplaces, outdoor games and activities, ample outdoor dining at local restaurants, and more. We encourage attendees to make a day of it, visiting multiple locations throughout downtown: Grant’s Block, Aborn Street, Union Street, Biltmore Park, and the BankNewport City Center.
GRANT’S BLOCK: During Open Air Saturdays, Grant’s Block park (on the corner of Union Street and Westminster Street) will feature live traditional music from around the world programmed by Providence World Music, as well as the return of Long Live Beerworks’ beer garden with 80+ seats and a variety of rotating food vendors serving up delicious options ranging from pizza to Burmese fusion.
ABORN STREET: On Aborn Street (between Washington Street and Westminster Street) Rosalina will be pouring Peroni and Aperol Spritz to accompany their sausage and peppers, and outdoor bocce court. On the same block, Durk’s Bar-B-Q will welcome weekly live rock and roll performances while serving their famous whisky based cocktails at an outdoor bar and offering a selection of smoked meats and barbeque. If your mouth is already watering in anticipation, we can’t blame you.
UNION STREET: Kin Southern Table + Bar will curate the “Kin Marketplace,” a market on Union Street—between Washington Street and Worcester Street—that highlights various Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and women-owned businesses. Attendees can enjoy outdoor seating with Soul Food classics and rum based cocktails by Kin, and a mix of R&B, Hip Hop, Reggae, and Afro Beats by local DJs.
BILTMORE PARK: At Biltmore Park, Trinity Beer Garden will serve local craft beer and select cocktails. (Yes, that is the Kimchi Bloody Mary calling your name.) Attendees will enjoy live music, a maker marketplace, outdoor games, and the exclusive opportunity to order food delivery from Reiners. Trinity Beer Garden is both family-friendly and dog-friendly so start packing those dog treats. For even more fun, the BankNewport City Center will be open next door from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. for roller skating.
