2020 Restaurant Partner Packages

With the 25th year anniversary of WaterFire approaching, we are busy gearing up for new and exciting events for our 2020 season. We are reaching out to our partners in the hospitality industry because we need your help to keep the fires burning brightly.

Each year, WaterFire brings hope, joy, and a sense of community to thousands of locals and tourists alike. Our hope is that once again, the entire hospitality community can join together to support WaterFire in 2020. WaterFire draws nearly 1,000,000 visitors per year with up to 100,000 for a single evening event, who create more than $114,000,000 in economic output which creates more than $9,000,000 in tax revenue for the State of Rhode Island and supports 1,294 jobs for local residents. WaterFire is #Art4Impact!

Your support will help us fund the entire season.

This year, we are asking that the restaurants agree to pay a suggested minimum contribution based on the following scale to support the WaterFire season. This year we would also love to include restaurants outside of the immediate Providence footprint as we know they are great destinations for WaterFire visitors. WaterFire hopes to produce 10 full fire lightings this season which equates to $250.00 per lighting at the highest category.

All website listings will run through the end of the 2020 WaterFire event season. Renewals will begin in December 2020 and non-renewing participants will be expunged starting in January 2021.

We will work with your marketing team to create content and determine the best schedule for your social media posts.

Each listing package includes up to TWO free listing updates. Additional updates will be charged at $25 each.

Package prices are listed based on a season comprising 10 full lightings of WaterFire running from May through November 2020. Prices will be prorated for participants that join this program after the season has already begun.
