Upcoming Tours

Gallery Night Providence Tours are completely FREE!

Tours depart from the Regency Plaza in Downtown Providence regularly (check below for tour schedule). We will gather on the first floor lounge of One Regency Plaza.

Tours are the most immersive way to enjoy Gallery Night; but they are not the ONLY way! You can also design your very own self-guided tour with the downloadable map on this website!

This is a FREE event and reservations are not required. However certain tours are extremely popular so if you would like reserve a seat, please consider making a $10 donation.
