Yellow Cup Weekend @ TBA
Dec 21 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
Yellow Cup Weekend @ TBA | North Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Yellow Cup Weekend was established in 2015 in Providence, Rhode Island. An event for adult folks seeking good vibes, music, games, food, art and entertainment. Why yellow cup? Well yellow is an awesome color and typical etiquette for house parties is to write your name on a cup so everyone knows it’s yours. We took it up a notch and decided to ditch just a sharpie and a red cup. When guests arrive they can choose from glitters, stickers, and markers to personalize their cup and sign other cups as well. Bring a friend, catch a vibe.
