The first ever Harbor Lights Newport hits the Newport harborfront on September 20 - 21, 2019 as boat owners, marinas and waterfront businesses illuminate their vessels, docks, yacht clubs, shops and restaurants with festive lights from dusk until 10 PM on both nights. Illuminated boats will remain in their slips and on their moorings as you stroll, shop and dine along the waterfront decorated with colorful lights and decor to kick off the fall season on The Classic Coast.

Each marina will choose and award their top three Best Decorated Boats to each receive a prize with an additional prize awarded to the Best Decorated Marina or Waterfront Business. Judging will commence on Friday and prizes will be awarded on Saturday. Event will take place rain or shine.


Harbor Lights Newport is sponsored by Discover Newport and the Newport Maritime Alliance.
