Thank to all of our sponsors, partners, supporters, and visitors for an awesome 2014 Event Season!

For 2015 events please see our 2015 Season Schedule.

This is a very special year for WaterFire as it marks 20 years since the first bonfires were lit on the rivers in Providence during the 1994 First Night celebration.

You can stay up-to-date by following WaterFire on our Facebook page, on Twitter, or by joining our email list.

WaterFire Providence would like to thank all of our 2014 sponsors, their support helped make our 2014 event season a success.
