2024 Restaurant Partnership Opportunities

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 2023. WaterFire draws nearly 1,000,000 visitors per year with up to 100,000 for a single evening event, which creates more than $114,000,000 in economic output and 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!

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 $50.00 per lighting.
