Start marking those calendars, 2020 is here and there are a ton of great events that you shouldn’t miss in Newport County this year!

In this list, we’ve included the bigger and most popular events that happen in our area. Of course, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of other events that take place throughout the year.

We recommend you keep an eye on Discover Newport’s event calendar and we’ll be doing our part to raise awareness of what events are coming soon as well (a new event calendar will be launching on What’s Up Newp this week).

There are always some amazing series’ happening throughout the year, keep an eye open for the schedule for newportFILM’s Outdoor Series, Newport Polo’s 2020 Schedule, Bridgefest, Newport Vineyards’ Sunday Funday Brix Brunch series and Scratch Series, and more.

Without further ado, start marking those calendars.
