Over 20 Providence-based restaurants served up dishes and demonstrations for guests, along with beverages from 25 festival bars. Mancini Beverage and McLaughlin & Moran, Inc., served as festival partners and exclusive beverage sponsors, with the festival highlighting Bud Light. Brand sponsors also included Tito’s Handmade Vodka, who offered two signature cocktails throughout the weekend; Astral Tequila; Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey; and Tanqueray Sevilla Orange. Tito’s Handmade Vodka, a PVDFest supporter since 2017, gave a donation to nonprofit and festival organizer FirstWorks. Two signature event cocktails featuring Tito’s were available at each festival bar during the weekend: Tito’s & Lemonade and Tito’s & Soda.
