• Newport, RI in Newport, RI

Horticulturists and gardening lovers come together in late June in Newport. The magnificent Rosecliff mansion is the site for this outstanding floral display. Based a unique annual theme, this show surrounds visitors with an array of landscaped gardens and floral arrangements. Lectures and workshops round out this terrific event.

What began as a two week tribute to the season 43 years ago has now evolved into a magnificent month-long event delighting young and old alike. Polar Express rides, doorway decoration contests and puppet shows depicting the birth of Christ are just a few of the special events scheduled. Many activities are free, but proceeds from those that are not are donated to various area charities.
