An annual tradition

“Daffodil Days” began in 2012, inspired by requests of local merchants to celebrate the profusion of bright new daffodils that were starting to explode each April. “Rhode” races, a storefront window decorating contest, bike rally, doggie parade, garden tours, music concerts, and a “Driving Miss Daffodil” classic car parade became part of the many springtime festivities.

Newport’s Daffodil Days is an all-volunteer event, now part of Newport in Bloom, a non-profit organization that for 40 years has encouraged residents and businesses to beautify their gardens and public spaces with flowers.

If you choose to view the largest of the daffodil fields in Newport, please take pictures, not the flowers, so that all can enjoy.

Thank you to our sponsors!
