News!

October 8, 2021

For the past eleven years, the East Providence Area Chamber of Commerce has hosted the Annual Watchemoket Square Day event with local businesses and organizations. The event was created to bring awareness to this waterfront area's past, present and future.

Over the years, the area has seen some development like Tockwotton on the Waterfront and concerts at Bold Point Park. Even more has been in planning stages and it's getting close to seeing those projects come alive as well.

This year's Watchemoket Square Day Week will be held during the first week in November 2021. It includes a virtual live presentation about projects like the restoration of the Odd Fellows Hall, construction on I-195W and Washington Bridge, design and improvements to the entrance to Watchemoket Square and more. 

An in-person ribbon cutting event is also being planned for a new feature in the Square.

Watchemoket Square Day is a celebration of the past, present and future of Watchemoket Square in the City of East Providence, Rhode Island.

 

During the late 1800's and early 1900's, the area was the center of the East Providence business community with over 100 businesses and hotels. It is now experiencing renewed interest and development of its buildings, waterfront and landscape.
