Federal Hill has long been called Providence’s Little Italy, retaining an Old World flavor while embracing a variety of other ethnicities and shops that cater to many varied tastes. And it’s all on display June 4 for the 14th Annual Federal Hill Stroll, organized by the Providence Warwick Convention and Visitors Bureau. Participants can sample signature cuisine or get discounts at restaurants, shops and galleries.

"The stroll is a great chance to experience one of Providence’s most treasured neighborhoods,” said Martha Sheridan, president and CEO of the bureau. “Federal Hill is rightfully known as one of the best ‘Little Italys” in America and the stroll lets people affordably see why.” Tickets are $30, plus tax, and include admission button, two free beverages and a map of participating venues. The night starts at 4:30 p.m. and includes various musical entertainment along the way. Participants can also vote for their favorite venues and help crown this year’s King of the Hill and Most Creative Venue. One voter will win dinner for two at a Federal Hill eatery. Participating venues include Andino’s Italian Restaurant, Scialo Bros. Bakery, Nancy’s Fancies, Pane e Vino, Trattoria Roma, West Side Eyewear Boutique and Wise Guys Deli. Tickets are limited and must be bought in advance at www.federalhillstroll.com or by calling 401-456-0298. The event will be held rain or shine.
