Bright Night Providence is Rhode Island's Largest New Year's Eve Celebration. Our festival features some of Rhode Island's best comedians, actors, singers, dancers, musicians, magicians, acrobats, storytellers, puppeteers and clowns, performing in over 14 venues throughout the downtown area. Shows run from 12 noon to 12 midnight and beyond.
Please note that some events offer discounts and not free admission. Those are clearly noted on the schedule.
When you purchase, choose which time you'd like to see our main show (6,8, or 10 pm). You'll be guaranteed admission to that show at the RI Convention Center. This year, our main show is international illusionist Brad Ross, who has spent the last 6 years as the star of Disney's Mickey's Magic Show!
In addition, your wristband will gain you access to over 40 other shows throughout the city from 12 noon - 12 midnight (on a space available basis)
On the day of the event, you must come to our Will Call Booth at the RI Convention Center to pick up your wristband(s). The WILL CALL Booth (first floor, RI Convention Center Box Office) will open at 10 am.
