  • Go Early! Parking once! Providence has some great restaurants in the area. You can go park, eat and then enjoy the night of music, warm fires, great people watching and art vendors.

  • Beautiful artsy attraction near the tidal river in down town Providence. Walk along water place park amongst the crowd and enjoy the sight and sounds of the fire. You can feel the warmth of the fire along the water. Be on the look out for statue and gargoyles you will be amazed when you find one. They also sometimes have a flame throwing entertainer. Waterfire is absolutely beautiful. Enjoy all the ways your senses come alive. The sight, the smell, the heat, the sound.. They run this off of donations so make sure you donate what you can and have fun.
  • I was here couple of years ago and finally last saturday back again. Love this event, so peaceful many many people around the river..We missed the fire show ( you feel like you are in the circus) but our end of June trip we won’t! Amazing experience the gondola ride just makes my heart melted so romantic! Be there on time check the schedule worth for the visit!
  • Fun and relaxing experience. Music, food, the smell of burning wood, passing by gondolas, contrast of fire and water - all of the above create quiet a pleasant experience. Highly recommend to visit at least once. Make sure to make a reservation at the restaurants ahead of time, places book super fast. Same goes for gondola rides, so plan ahead.
  • What a great experience! Waterfire makes for a firey romantic evening or a wonderful new experience for the family. If you like Asian Cuisine, eat at Jacky's on the basin.
  • Always love Waterfire - it's an amazing spectacle with plenty to see and do up and down the canal. Just don't park near Providence Station, my car and several others had windows smashed out and stuff stolen during the event. the worst part was when we called the police. PROVIDENCE POLICE DON'T CARE. they didn't even ask when or where. I have been to Waterfire several times and loved it every time but I will never go back.
