Just as millions of 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.  All we ask when you land on these shores is that you play your part in keeping everyone safe. Please be kind and adhere to local guidelines. 


APRIL 2022

Welcoming visitors to our City by the Sea each April to enjoy the beauty of over 1,200,000 daffodils throughout town.

If you choose to view the daffodil fields in Newport, please practice safe distancing from one another and please don’t pick the flowers. They’re for all to enjoy.

Newport’s Daffodil Days is an all-volunteer event in support of NEWPORT IN BLOOM, a non-profit, all volunteer organization that for 40 years has encouraged residents and businesses to beautify their gardens and public spaces with flowers.

  • Places and maintains the many beautiful hanging baskets along Bellevue Avenue and Touro Street.
  • Conducts both spring and fall garden competitions.
  • Holds a plant sale each spring.
  • Donates and gives away over 30,000 daffodil bulbs each fall to the City of Newport, Aquidneck Island residents and non-profit organizations.

Each April, Blithewold opens its gates to welcome visitors just as springtime begins. Our famous display, covers this 33-acre seaside estate with over 50,000 daffodils that delight visitors for nearly a month.

The first week, timed to the annual school vacation week, is filled not only with flowers, but lots of fun-for-the-whole-family programming that celebrate our favorite yellow-flower friends. Come and stroll the grounds at your leisure. Or visit our program pages to register for afternoon tea, concert or workshop that's just right for you and your favorite group of friends.
