Get your ticket to the Best party of the year!

The 2016 #BestofRI Party is July 21st at the Providence Performing Arts Center.

It’s that time of year again, Rhode Island: Our annual Best of Rhode Island Party® is less than a month away!
We were so excited for the festivities that we decided to hit the Roger Williams Park Zoo with our friends Steve Donovan and Heather Gersten of Lite Rock 105 to find out what locals think are the “best” bits of Little Rhody and to see which of them knew their RI  trivia. Check out their responses in the video below:


Okay, now that you’re properly pumped, remember that you too can experience the absolute Best of Rhode Island® (by 2016 standards) in person at the Providence Performing Arts Center on Thursday, July 21st. For only $55 a pop, party-goers will not only gain access to the venue, but will also have their pick of delicious nibbles from a variety of local vendors like Chapel Grille, Matunuck Oyster Bar, Providence Coal Fired Pizza, UMelt, Basta, Willow Tree and Sin. Libations will also be on hand, including unlimited wine and Narragansett beer as well as two drinks from our martini bar. And that’s not even mentioning the other perks: live music from Steve Smith and The Nakeds, impromptu stage dancing, a rocking photo booth and an absolute steal of a silent auction. In the meantime, be sure to check out our online auction now through July 13 to bid on concert tickets, getaways, spa and family fun packages and more!

But here’s the catch: you need to get your ticket as soon as possible! Beginning this Friday, July 1st, the price will rise to $65 each. Last year’s event sold out pretty quickly and this year’s already looks like it will follow suit… So what are you waiting for? Go take advantage of the chance to party with the best of the best in the Ocean State!
The 2016 #BestofRI Party is presented by Rhode Island Monthly and the Providence Performing Arts Center with proceeds benefiting Learn It to Earn It, an educational program that provides urban Rhode Island students with access to Broadway shows. This year’s event is proudly sponsored by Audi Warwick, Cardi’s Furniture and Mattresses, Rhode Runner, Delta Dental, the Better Business Bureau, and Benny’s.
