Best time to travel to Providence
Providence hosts many events throughout the year. Held from spring to fall, WaterFire Providence is the most famous, when fires burn along the city’s rivers stretching more than half a mile. Summer festivals include Foo Fest and Providence Sound Session, while fall presents the Annual Rhythm & Roots Festival in nearby Charlestown. Aside from its entertaining festivals, the best time to visit Providence is during the beginning of the fall season to experience the beautiful fall foliage, and when the high volume of summer tourists has left the city.
