Thank you for your interest in performing at WaterFire Providence.

Due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we are postponing the performer approval process for the 2020 season. This page will be updated when we have a clearer picture of when we’ll be able to resume normal operations.

Please fill out the inquiry form and we’ll follow up when we are able to move forward with the season.

From national and local bands featuring a wide range of musical genres to opera singers and classical orchestras, fire spinners and traditional ethnic dance troupes to marching bands and theatrical puppets, we curate interesting and exciting events that inspire one million visitors a year. Since we receive thousands of inquiries from artists requesting to bring their talents to WaterFire each year, we, unfortunately, cannot accommodate everyone. However, we will reserve your information in our database for future reference. All performing artists must be approved by WaterFire Providence to be able to perform during events. Your inquiry will be carefully reviewed by our team for consideration. Thank you.
