Our site doesn’t have a paywall and all of our content and newsletters are always free to read.

Instead, reader support and advertising from local businesses power our locally owned, independent newsroom. If you like what we do, a contribution of $8/month means more than you’d think, and any amount helps.

Discover all that’s happening, new, and to do in and around Newport this week and weekend.

This story may be updated as we learn about more/additional events and meetings. Check back often for updates. Have something that you’d like to see included here? Email Ryan@whatsupnewp.com.
