ABOUT FÊTE MUSIC HALL
Fête Music Hall is New England’s premier live music and events venue dedicated to providing innovative music programming to an audience as diverse as New England itself. Fête’s mission is to rejuvenate the relationship between music and revelry; create a haven where both artists and audiences engage in a unique and gratifying cultural experience and actively participate in the revitalization of Olneyville, a unique and historic Providence neighborhood.
The Ballroom, Lounge, and Shelter Arcade Bar (2016) at Fête Music Hall will have a lasting impact upon The Creative Capital’s vibrant art, culture and tourism industry. Fête will create employment opportunities for various education and skill levels. Our culturally diverse programming will provide thousands of visitors the opportunity to visit, shop, and dine while experiencing the unique charms of Providence.
Many bands with significant followings by-pass Rhode Island for other metro areas such as Boston, causing missed revenue streams for our state. With three unique rooms, Fête will tap into the local, regional, and national music scene, actively working to stimulate and support the artistic community.
