Just as 1.2 million hibernating daffodils prepare to make their debut along the city's cobblestone paths and sun-drenched shores, Newport and Bristol counties prepare to celebrate with two annual celebrations.
When you're ready, we can't wait to welcome you back to The Classic Coast. Rest assured, the safety and well-being of both visitors and locals remains our top priority. The mask mandate requiring face coverings in Rhode Island has been lifted, however local businesses may ask you to wear a mask when visiting their establishments. Please be prepared for individual business mask policies. Additionally, shops, attractions and tours are monitoring the number of guests at any given time and may ask you to socially distance to enter.
All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind, adhere to guidelines and maintain social distancing.
NEWPORT DAFFODIL DAYS
Thanks to the Newport Daffodillion project, Newport is home to 1.2 million daffodils come spring. The city typically celebrates with nine days of events to commemorate the annual Newport Daffodil Days Festival, however this year will look a little different. In keeping with COVID-19 safety restrictions and guidelines on gatherings, the festival has been canceled for the 2021 season. In its place will be a month-long celebration, including socially-distanced celebrations and family-friendly happenings.
