(10.22) Head over to the North Burial Ground Sunday for the second installment of the Mausoleum Hill Sessions. Sit, picnic, and enjoy the ambiance, along with some of the area’s best musicians. Take a look around, you will be steeped in local history and familiar names (this is the Brown family mausoleum). The North Burial Ground was established in 1700, open to people of all faiths. Buried among governors, mayors, Revolutionary and Civil War leaders, and Providence’s most prominent citizens, are people from all walks of life: artists, poets, abolitionists, and emancipated slaves. Access Sunday’s event at the gates on North Main Street.
You’ll enter through the Rochambeau Gates on North Main St. and traipse through 21 local vendors, following a candle lit path that leads you to the center of the grounds where the music will be playing. Bring a chair or a blanket and feel free to get cozy anywhere you’d during the musical performances. As the sun sets behind the players, picnic with your friends & family, then walk around the premises investigating the resting places of some of the town’s forefathers!
We’ll have Long Live Brewery on site providing drinks to pair with the night’s festivities to give it a true Providence local flavor!
Musical performances: Stev Delmonico, Molly O’Leary, Beth Barron, Dave Alves, Vudu Sister. Dan Blakeslee as Dr. Gasp, Allysen Callery, and Cassie Soares.
Market opens at 2pm. Music starts at 5pm.
