Happening Around Newport

The Broadway Street Fair is back!

Last year more than 10,000 people took a stroll along Broadway, Newport’s historic Main Street and major artery into the city and celebrated the diversity that Newport is known for.

The Street Fair will begin at Equality Park and extend all down into Washington Square. The day will be filled with music, food, family activities, exhibiting artists & makers and local non-profits. This is a rain or shine event! The food is delicious, the children’s activities are plentiful and the vendors are amazing! I’m hoping Bike Newport sponsors the Pie Jousting again–This is hilarious! You won’t want to miss it!


People are encouraged to WALK or BIKE to the Street Fair. For those that do intend to drive, please note that Broadway will be open to pedestrian traffic ONLY. NO PARKING will be available on Broadway. Please plan accordingly!


The Broadway Street Fair is going to be a great day and now

a great NIGHT too! 

In addition to the 16-piece Swinglane Orchestra and Chelley, Bill and Dyl 

there will be some surprise busking entertainers.

Proceeds after expenses will be used to buy musical instruments

for Thompson Middle School.
