Held in late February, the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival is a four-day festival celebrating the dining and wine-tasting culture of the central Oregon coast.

We are also close to the Newport Celtic Festival, held on the Lincoln County Fairgrounds, just two miles (six minutes) away. Reach the festival with a drive down U.S. 101 before making a left on NE 7th Street, which will take you to the fairgrounds.
Held in mid-June, the festival features events like the Kilted Kilometer, Ceili Community Dance, Whisky Tasting, and kids' activities. Don't miss the centerpiece Celtic Heritage Parade, the Celtic Fashion Show, and the Jacobite Rebels Living History.
