Garden Competition

Garden Competition

Quick Links

The annual Garden Competition is our tradition of recognizing Newport residents and business owners who nurture their gardens and flower containers throughout the city. When the Garden Competition is going on, Newport looks extra beautiful.

It’s open to anyone and everyone! The city is divided into three residential zones and includes awards to newcomers, small and large businesses, B&Bs, senior and family housing, and community. After the competition closes, a team goes around and photographs each entry. After that, another team goes around and judges each entry.

How to Enter

All entries must be submitted by July 24, 2023.  All plantings must be visible from the street.
