47th Annual Christmas in Newport, RI Celebrates the Season

Enjoy hundreds of cultural, culinary, historical and seasonal events at the 47th Annual Christmas in Newport celebration in Rhode Island this month.

Tours of the great mansions, holiday caroling, children's activities, visits with Santa, concerts and dance recitals are available throughout December.

Overseas visitors now have easy access to Newport thanks to the new Norwegian Air  flights operating out of T.F. Green Airport in nearby Providence.  These flights connect Rhode Island to European cities like Dublin, Shannon, Cork, Belfast and Edinburgh.

As part of the community spirit to make this a singular occasion each year, only clear bulbs illuminate the scenic harbor and wharves, the restored colonials of the Point and Historic Hill sections, and the Victorian splendor of Bellevue Avenue.
