Presented by the Wilbury Theatre Group, The Olneyville Expo is a theatrical event celebrating the history, culture and community of the Olneyville neighborhood of Providence. Borrowing both the variety format and the ethics of education and uplift from 19th Expositions, Chautauquas, and Worlds Fairs, The Olneyville Expo brings together community groups, historians, ecologists, storytellers, artists, performers, engineers and artisans to create a collaborative portrait of the space we share.
Hosted by Phoenyx Williams and staged under a tent in Donigian Park, the piece will include short talks, demonstrations, interviews, performances, films and live music. There will also be activities for children, a beer garden for adults and food for all.
This event is part of Year of the City: www.yearofthecity.com.
