What's Going On In December?

Answer: Plenty of great events all over the city!

December has got to be one of the best months to visit Newport. There's so much going on, from Victorian feasts to theater performances to murder mystery tours to Christmas tree lightings!

The holiday season in Newport is also the perfect time to eat, drink, be merry and visit with family and friends. I know I look forward to visiting every Christmas for just those reasons.

So what are you waiting for? Book your accommodations today, and come enjoy everything the "City by the Sea" has to offer:
December Events

Some of December's highlights:
  • 40th Annual Bowen's Wharf Christmas Tree Lighting
  • Victorian Christmas Feast
  • Glitter & Gold, A Gilded Age Holiday Concert
  • The Polar Express™
  • Christmas at the Newport Mansions
If you want to let me know about a great event that's going on, or want to promote your own event, feel free to do so by adding it to our Event Calendar

Newport Arts Scene Magazine

Newport Arts Scene Magazine is an entertainment magazine covering arts and artists in the Newport, RI area. It's managed, manned and produced by the artists and arts lovers in the area.

This group is open to artists and individuals that want to be involved with the arts scene in Newport, and arts organizations that understand that partnering and collaborating is the key to success for their organization.

Jimmy's Saloon

Wondering which Newport Rhode Island bars are favored by the locals? Look no further than Jimmy's Saloon on Memorial Boulevard!

Few Newport watering holes have such a casual and fun atmosphere. Just a few blocks up the hill from 1st Beach, Jimmy's is the perfect place to grab some cold drinks after a day of enjoying the sun and sand (or to escape the cold in the winter!).

Newport Mansions Quiz

Think you know the Newport mansions pretty well? Let's see if you can pass this quiz on some of the most popular "summer cottages".

This a multiple choice quiz, and I've made it even easier by adding some photos to assist you! So let's see how much you know.....
