PPS Holiday Festival Showcased Downtown Lofts!

On Saturday, December 6th, the PPS Downtown Holiday Festival showcased 11 stunning lofts, located in six historic buildings that have undergone dramatic restorations! These private residences were open to the public from 11A.M. – 4 P.M.

Providence is nationally recognized for having one of the most intact and historically significant, nineteenth century downtowns in the nation. Over the last several years, the Downtown has been in the midst of an incredible transformation with the conversion of former department stores and commercial buildings into dynamic living spaces. Tour goers experienced award winning restorations, visually stunning architectural details and breathtaking views of the magnificent Providence skyline.

PPS, in cooperation with the Providence Foundation, Providence/Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Downtown Merchants Association and Shop Downcity, promoted a Buy Local campaign through its Holiday Festival. Historic Downtown Providence’s local merchants were open for business throughout the day during the Holiday Festival to give tour goers an opportunity to get some early holiday shopping in. Many businesses had musicians in their stores to entertain the crowds. For more information on local businesses, visit Shop Downcity or Providence Downtown.
