Daffodil Days are Here (April 1-30)

Posted on Updated on

Spring is coming and with it are the Newport Daffodil Days!   In addition to more than 1,200,000 daffodils blooming throughout town, the month of April is filled with events to celebrate our city. 

The Easter Bunny will be visiting Newport on April 10th at the Shops at Long Wharf. From 1-3 pm, you can have your picture taken with the Easter Bunny, play games, and create crafts.

Newport’s merchants have been challenged to “get the yellow out” and create the daffiest storefront windows. Visit the shops (wearing your daffy pin for a daffy deal!) and then vote for your favorite!

For more information on how to get a daffy pin as well as other special events — such as the Tour Des Jonquilles Bike Ride (April 9th), the Newport Rhode Races (April 16th), and much more – visit Newport Daffodil Days
