If you missed the Daffodil Giveaway at First Beach, Newport in Bloom will distribute a limited amount of bulbs at the Aquidneck Growers Market (Claiborne Pell Elementary School) October 23rd and October 30th from 9 am until they are gone.
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 will be our 39th year encouraging businesses and residents to get outside, meet their neighbors and beautify their homes through the planting and display of flowers.
*** NEW: This year, Newport in Bloom is conducting a competition to recognize those homes, gardens, and doors that make Newport special during the Fall season! Read more about this competition at the Fall Curb Appeal Competition. Entries close on November 21 and winners will be announced on December 1st. ***
This year’s major activities include:
- 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.
