Info

The 2019 Newport Flower Show will celebrate its 24th year with a variety of special events, expert guest speakers, beautiful floral designs, impressive horticulture exhibits, stunning garden displays, unique shopping opportunities, and more. 

This year's theme, Audubon: Artistic Adventures, will celebrate bird expert and painter John James Audubon (1785-1851), whose artful hand created a pictorial journal not only of the birds he loved but also of their habitats. The front lawn of Rosecliff will be transformed into an aviary of both real birds and birds made of plant materials, with vibrant gardens inspired by pink flamingos and blue herons, circular gardens based on Audubon's paintings of birds, topiary peacocks made entirely of flowers, and much more. Bartlett Tree Experts will sponsor the setting for 15-20-minute pop-up lectures and demonstrations by noted plant experts, flower designers and gardeners on the front lawn throughout the weekend.

Newport Flower Show highlights include the Opening Night Party on Friday, June 21; Dinner & A Movie, including a film viewing of "Greenfingers" on Saturday, June 22; Afternoon Tea Reception on Friday, June 21; Champagne & Jazz Brunch on Sunday, June 23; a Lecture Luncheon with internationally known lifestyle expert India Hicks on Friday, June 21 and a Lecture Luncheon with gardening expert Laura LeBoutillier of GardenAnswer.com on Saturday, June 22.
