FRIDAY night is “Date Night” at the show!

Dinner and a show….the Fine Furnishings Show. A quick bite before or a long leisurely dinner after, you decide. It’s Friday night – let’s celebrate. First dibs on items for sale. Help us kick off the show!

There is plenty of free parking on the streets surrounding the Armory, in the long lot on Broadway along the highway, and in the Tolman High School parking lot when school is NOT in session.

There is a variety of dining in Pawtucket, including Murphy’s Law Irish Pub (our host bar/restaurant), which is attached to the show host hotel – the Comfort Inn – just 1 exit south of the Armory on 95.

The Pawtucket Armory Arts Center is in the heart of Pawtucket- a thriving arts community – and approximately 3 miles North of downtown Providence, which offers additional arts and dining opportunities.

We encourage you to visit for more visitor information whether you plan to spend a few hours or a few days!

Pawtucket is part of the Blackstone Valley which is a group of nine cities and towns, located along the banks of a great river — an American Heritage river, in fact — the Blackstone, the very place where the American industrial Revolution began more than 200 years ago. Over the years, dozens of mills along a 45-mile stretch of this powerful, majestic waterway churned out products for a young nation and, here in northern Rhode Island, we became the heart of a new, industrialized way of life.

Providence is home to the world-renowned Rhode Island School of Design. The school has it own museum, but don’t miss the many smaller galleries throughout town as well.

Federal Hill (“Little Italy”) offers a plethora of dining experiences. The main drag is Atwells Avenue, which is ideal for finding a great snack, a bracing espresso, or some freshly made pasta to take back home.

The Culinary Museum at Johnson & Wales University offers one of the finest collections of kitchenware, appliances, cookbooks, menus, historic showpieces, and diner artifacts in the world.

WaterFire’s one hundred sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic wood smoke, the flickering firelight on the arched bridges and the enchanting music from around the world engage all the senses and emotions of those who stroll the paths of Waterplace Park. (CHECK THEIR SCHEDULE)
