WaterFire is actively seeking sponsorship for a 2013 WaterFire Ballroom. As of right now we do not have any events scheduled for 2013; any dates that may be added will be updated on this page.
Are you or your company interested in adding a night of dancing at WaterFire in 2013?
As a free event, WaterFire is entirely dependent upon donations and sponsorships. We will work with you and your company to develop a partnership and sponsorship that will address all of your specific needs. The Ballroom is a part of the grand WaterFire installation, capturing the hearts and imaginations of hundreds of thousands of WaterFire visitors throughout the years. Previously known as the Sovereign Plaza Ballroom and then the TD Bank Ballroom, this popular venue features live music, dance lessons, dance demonstrations, and open dancing under the stars while surrounded by the breathtaking architecture of downtown Providence’s Financial District. A polished black dance floor, stretching sixty-one feet across, hovering just above the cobblestones, at the intersection of Westminster and Weybosset Streets is installed to facilitate the event. This event is free to the public.
For information about sponsoring the WaterFire Ballroom please contact our development department at 401-751-1221 or email bronwyn@waterfire.
