Newport Festivals Foundation Gala

Newport, RI

Saturday, July 30, 2016


The Newport Festivals Gala has become one of the go-to social events of the Newport summer season. Held in one of Newport’s magnificent homes, the evening will feature artists from the Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals. All proceeds go to benefit Newport Festivals Foundation programs.

We are thrilled by the amazing outpouring of support that gives us the privilege to announce that the 2016 Newport Festivals Foundation Gala is SOLD OUT.  However, we regret that the early sell out means that many of our long-time friends are unable to attend our fabulous fundraiser this year. We plan to return to another beautiful Bellevue mansion in 2017 where we hope you will join us for a great celebration of our mutual love for jazz and folk music.

If you are still interested in supporting the Foundation, tickets are still available for THE Jazz Club, a premium experience package for Sunday at Fort Adams State Park. The package includes a festival admission ticket, reserved parking, limited Club seating, access to the Club lounge with complimentary light food and a private cash bar, upgraded restroom facilities, a commemorative poster and more. You can also support the Foundation by making a donation here.

Thank you for your continued support!
