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 13th to September 14th, Burnside Park will be transformed into your favorite restaurant, your family outing, your afternoon date, and your patio bar. Lounge on the grass and grab a bite from Red’s Rhode Island, 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.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page so you’re among the first to hear the line up for our 2017 series.

Local electronic music aficionado Mauricio Ossa layers drum machines, sweeping synthesizers, and live guitar for a sound that is unmistakably his own. Both danceable and dreamy, Bellerophon has something for everyone. Sponsored by Robinson + Cole.
This jazz combo is headed by Providence’s multi-talented, genre-hopping virtuoso Jeremy Harris. They will be joined for one date only by nationally renowned bassist Evan Lipson. Sponsored by Aurora.
Redefining “supergroup,” this trio features members of The Sugar Honey Iced Tea, Roz and the Rice Cakes, and GYMSHORTS. Their brilliant vocal harmonies and unparalleled musicianship create an awestruck audience in all who have the good fortune to catch them! Reunited for two shows only, this rare set will be a special treat.
Grupo Sazon’s blend of Merengue, Salsa, Latin Jazz, and Cha Cha promises to move every spirit and body in the room!
Blending rock and country with the same flare they join joy and torment, The Quahogs kinetic siren songs reel in all who have the pleasure to listen. Stick around while Rhode Island’s premier brass band What Cheer? Brigade descend on Burnside Park with their signature merriment and mayhem!
This trio has long been one of Lil’ Rhodie’s most lauded exports. Critics praise their impeccable pop sensibility and flawless songwriting; their exquisite musicianship and precisely meandering melodies. We just like it!
Team Burnside could not be more excited to welcome back to our stage (after far too long away!) this group of all star Providence heavy hitters. The momentum of The ‘Mericans jangling guitar riffs is belied by a shimmering moodiness and introspective vocal melodies. Their glimmering sounds lilting through the trees is not to be missed!
