For the second time Mayor Jorge Elorza has opened the City of Providence to a fantastic festival combing international and local artists and performers. Elorza envisions PVDFest as one day becoming as important to the city as SXSW is to Austin, TX. Todays press conference to kick off the event was attended by Senator Jack Reed and Close Act Theater, amulti-disciplinary street theater company from the Netherlands making its East Coast debut with Saurus.
Last years’ arts festival was great. I expect big things this year.
