Keep the fire burning brightly as we wind down 2023!
WaterFire has literally and figuratively illuminated Rhode Island for nearly three decades. Every season, around a million visitors flock to the state to experience this incredible public art installation. One small non-profit organization has transformed our city and state in incredible ways, but we cannot do it alone.
This year, we were honored to have volunteers from all 39 cities and towns in Rhode Island. Hailing from every corner of the state, our volunteers and supporters made everything we accomplished this year possible. They kept fires burning; they kept boats afloat; they supported local artists and students and brought transformative, world-class art experiences to thousands of people. It is a great honor to be a part of such an extraordinary community.
Will you join us? WaterFire lightings are free and open to the public, an essential component of what makes this institution so special. We need your help to ensure that we can continue to support and serve our entire community.
