St. Patrick’s Day Parade

If you’ve never experienced a Saint Patrick’s Day in Newport, you’re really missing out on loads of fun and excitement!  Newport’s distinguished Irish immigrant history makes for  authentic traditions throughout the month of March leading up to New England’s loooongest St. Paddy’s Day parade. Hundreds of floats, flogging dancers, leprechauns of all sizes, bands from all over New England, reenactments, fifes and drums, and of course, the bag pipes!  Basically, it’s a BLAST!!  And the Fitzroy is smack dab in the middle of all the action!  Truly, one of a kind experience!

This mild New England weather has got us thinking Spring!  We can almost smell the daffodils!

Springtime: When all things begin anew. Starting with The Newport Daffodil Days Festival. Before we know it the daffodils will begin to bloom. This 10 day affair of spectacular displays of heavenly, yellow floral blankets spread delightfully along the Cliff Walk, around the Mansions and over just about every park, street corner, storefronts and outside of the city’s best eats!  Oh, wait, we have a Spring Package you just can’t beat!!

City Spotlight

yesterday's

Yesterday is gone. After 42 years in business, Newport said goodbye to a longtime favorite as Yesterday’s Restaurant closed its doors back in September. However, the space won’t remain unoccupied for too long.  Stoneacre Pantry plans to move from its current location on Thames Street into the 5,000sf space in Washington Square. In addition to running a restaurant, they will also run a butcher shop and New York style deli out of the space. The brasserie-style restaurant will serve lunch and dinner daily and brunch on the weekends. The butcher shop and deli will open daily at 7 a.m.

So, that’s what’s up in Newport!

Check back next month for more events and excitement from Newport.
