On Saturday, February 25 the Providence Preservation Society is holding its Winter Bash at the International Importing Co. Building in Providence. This year’s theme is “Kings and Queens” and creative interpretations are encouraged!
Each year, the Winter Bash is held in a different transitioning space showcasing the potential of the city’s historic buildings. This year’s location, the International Importing Co. Building, is one of the city’s two original produce market buildings and is being transitioned into “Made In Rhode Island” Maker Space by Rathbone Properties LLC. Guests of the event will be able to get a “sneak peek” of the progress while benefiting all the Providence Preservation Society does for historical properties in the city.
The event features a DJ, surprise theatrical performances, a royal photo station, and complimentary food from local restaurants and vendors. For more information on the event and what is included with General admission and VIP tickets visit the event website here. Get your tickets by February 1 for special savings!
