AS220’s Foo Fest is a grandly proportioned summer celebration of Rhode Island’s vibrant arts community! Last year’s Foo Fest drew over 5,000 people to downtown Providence. AS220 is a non-profit community arts space in downtown Providence and Foo Fest is our annual block party. They close off Empire St and fill it with artist installations, interactive games and performances by local and national acts. Foo Fest – one of the best reasons to get yourself to downtown Providence in August.
