The City of Pawtucket has partnered with the Pawtucket Foundation and Lindsey Lerner to apply for a $25,000 grant to host a music concert series at Festival Pier in the Summer of 2020. If we receive this grant money, we will be able to host 10 concerts at Festival Pier that will be free and open to the public. This grant gives us the opportunity to bring new life to this underutilized park space along the river and can bring together people from all walks of life and socio-economic class to enjoy the musical entertainment. These concerts will feature local artists and help Pawtucket showcase its growing musical industry to the region! More information on the grant can be found in this story by the Valley Breeze.
This grant is unique in that it uses nationwide online voting to determine who advances. We are currently in 26th place and but need to be in the Top 25 to make it to the next grant round. Public voting is now live and we need your help to become a finalist! Could you help us by voting for Pawtucket and sharing the voting link with employees/tenants/friends/family? Voting ends on November 20th.
