Newport in Bloom

Newport in Bloom is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded in 1982 by the late Jean West and Ineko Stephan to beautify our city with gardens and flowers. 2021 was our 39th year encouraging businesses and residents to get outside, meet their neighbors and beautify their homes through the planting and display of flowers.

Major activities in 2021 included:

  • Newport in Bloom honored those who plant and nurture flower gardens and flower containers at its 2021 Garden Competition Awards ceremony on August 17th at the Newport Tennis Hall of Fame.  To see this year’s winners, please visit 2021 Garden Competition Awards.
  • Thanks to everyone who joined us on May 16th and made our 2021 Plant Sale a great success.  We hope everyone enjoys the locally grown herbs, annuals, perennials, succulents and hanging baskets purchased at the sale.
  • A window decorating contest with local retailers and restaurants was held during Newport Daffodil Days (April 1-30, 2021).  Check out the winners and all the beautiful windows.
  • Newport in Bloom supported the Fall Daffodil Giveaway sponsored by Daffodilian. This year’s giveaway was held on October 16th at First Beach and 30,000 bulbs were given away in less than 2 hours! 
  • Newport in Bloom sponsored our first ever Fall Garden Competition.  Check out photos of the winners and other honorable mentions.
  • We hope you enjoyed the cascading geranium baskets that were spread throughout downtown and other sections of the city.
