Burnside Music Series and Trinity Beer Garden

The Downtown Providence Parks Conservancy is excited to welcome you back to Burnside Park for another fun summer of free music in the park!

Every Thursday this summer from July 7th to September 8th, Burnside Park will be transformed into your favorite restaurant, your family outing, your afternoon date, and your patio bar. Lounge on the grass, grab a bite from your favorite food truck, or sidle up to the tables and chairs at Trinity Brewhouse’s beer garden (open from 4:30-7:30 every Thursday!). Live music from 5:30-7 ensures that your personal dance hall, show space, and musician’s salon is but a stroll downtown away.

Always keep an eye on our Facebook event for more links, band information, inclement weather scares, and moment to moment updates!
