Newport International Boat Show

The largest in-water boat show in the northeast is back in the iconic harbor of Newport. With a perfect balance of both power and sail boats, the show offers an all-inclusive experience for those searching for the newest sea-faring vessel. Many new models will be unveiled for the first time – take off your shoes and climb aboard, while chatting with those who know it best.

Even those who aren’t in the market for a boat will find the show exciting. With seminars and waterside entertainment, there’s no better way to find your own place in Newport’s boating culture.

An array of food options and atmospheres will be available – from seaside fare and a full bar at the Sunset Lounge, to a quick caffeine fix at a bistro-style coffee truck. Children will enjoy crafts and activities just for them – though strollers are not allowed on the docks, so please plan accordingly.

The show runs from September 13th through 16th, with gates opening at 10 each morning. The best place to park is at Easton’s Beach, about a mile from the wharf. A fee of $20 includes parking and a continuous shuttle to and from the boat show. Parking passes are available in advance online.
