Ice Jam

On Saturday, January 28th head downtown to “Ice Jam” to partake in some post-holiday cheer to help stave off the cold weather blues!


From 1:00 – 8:30 pm, District Park and the Michael Van Leesten Memorial Bridge will be illuminated and activated with ice sculptures, lighting installations, and inflatable art courtesy of Pneuhaus studios. Families will be able to go on a journey through District Park to discover frozen friends on the Winter Wonder Walk and read a seasonal story while crossing the pedestrian bridge. The Guild PVD Beer Garden and partnering food trucks will be serving delicious food and drink offerings to enjoy in the “warm-up tent.” Join some of your favorite pals from The Rainbow Beard Show inside the tent and be ready for cozy hangs by a cardboard fire, comforting songs to make you want to rock (in your chair), and an ice-themed craft project to create! Stroll on over to the neighboring Aloft Hotel for a killer acoustic performance by Rhode Island Native, guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter, Nolan Leite. Also featuring a pop-up art show by local Providence artist, Niko Tolentino, and signature icy cocktails. All happening at W XYZ lounge inside the Aloft Hotel from 4:00 – 8:00 pm.
