A Benefit Street Holiday

Saturday, 12/03/2011 – 9:00 AM to 6:30 PM

 Benefit Street Holiday-December 3rd

2011 Holiday Festival

The Providence Preservation Society presented A Benefit Street Holiday, a family–friendly day–long Holiday Festival launching the festive season of shopping, celebrations and homecomings in Providence. Guests were treated to a personal glimpse of select Benefit Street houses. Tour-goers will learned about this nationally significant collection of 18th-and 19th-century architecture from teams of trained volunteers at each house. This year’s Festival will also featured guided walking tours and educational lectures. 

PPS added a Family Day ticket to the Holiday Festival which included storytelling by the acclaimed Len Cabral; gingerbread house decorating; a visit from the Snow Queen; a pet parade; carriage rides; and a parade to light the City Christmas tree.

We would like to thank our sponsors who made this event possible:
