100th Anniversary Gala Celebration of the Graduate Providence Hotel

6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Graduate Hotel (formerly The Biltmore Providence)
11 Dorrance Street
Providence, Rhode Island

Tickets $50/$75

Join us at Graduate Providence to celebrate the historic hotel's 100-year anniversary!

It's no secret this landmark locale has plenty of old-school charm. Thanks to the lobby's original ornate ceiling and famed glass-and-brass elevator, among other Beaux-arts design elements, the trendsetting Biltmore is still regarded as Providence's crown jewel. Since 1922, its halls have seen and delighted everyone from the real-life Von Trapp family to the Kennedys.

Come honor the hotel's storied past with an elevated experience including '20s themed cocktails, delicious food and live performance by New England premiere vintage dance company The Tropigals and the Compaq Big Band.

You can even peruse a gallery on the 17th floor displaying curated photos, china, and other archives in partnership with the Rhode Island Historical Society.

Admission includes 2 drink tickets per person, complimentary Hors d'oeuvres, and food stations. Cash bar is available.

The Compaq Big Band plays from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM.

Purchase tickets online at: eventbrite. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to a Rhode Island local non-profit.
