The secret’s out: Rhode Island’s best party is turning 15 this March 3, and you’ll need your alias and a code word to enter, darling! 

The award-winning Winter Bash pops up with a robust following in a different historic city space each year. The 2018 locale, ALCO, was once home to such Industrial Era-giants as Rhode Island Locomotive Works, American Locomotive Works and US Rubber. The Bash will be held in the final section of ALCO to be rehabilitated as distinctive commercial space by The Foundry Associates.

This year’s "A Speakeasy Affair" theme pays homage to one of the most bustling of eras in the site’s history, and offers costume options galore: From all-out glam to gangster, bootlegger, flapper, musician, or secret agent. Creative interpretations are strongly encouraged.

Those with the code (ticket) receive complimentary parking, bites and entertainment. VIP code-holders enjoy exclusive-access lounges, bottomless bubbles and elite tastings.

The Winter Bash was named Best Local Event-Providence and Best Nonprofit Fundraiser-Statewide by Rhode Island Monthly in 2017. All proceeds benefit PPS’s mission to improve Providence by advocating for citywide preservation and thoughtful planning and design.
