10-day winter festival begins Friday in Newport

The 25th annual Newport Winter Festival begins Friday, Feb. 15, and kicks off 10 days of food, festivities and music, including a fireworks spectacular over Newport Harbor on opening night at 6:30.

“What started off as a small, local affair has grown into one of the biggest winter festivals in the Northeast,” said Discover Newport President Evan Smith. The festival has more than 150 events for kids and adults.

Newport Winter Festival buttons, which offer special discounts at local businesses including restaurants and retailers, are available for purchase at the Newport Visitors Center at 23 America’s Cup Ave.
