Slater Park Fall Festival is a two-day outdoor event featuring musical performances by fourteen local artists, rapper Iris Creamer to jazz singer Michelle Cruz to Mixed Magic Theatre’s Exult Choir. The free, dog-friendly* starts at 11am and there’s a lot going on, including but not limited to an interactive screenprinting demo, a pop-up skate park, a plant-based food market, collaborative artmaking with VSA Arts, a performance by the RI Philharmonic, and fireworks. This two-day event is a festival within a festival, part of the larger Pawtucket Arts Festival that’s talking place throughout the city for the month of September.
