Newport has a variety of festivals happening all year round, and coming up this weekend, June 22-24th is the Newport Flower Show, held at Rosecliff Mansion.  This years theme is Salsa – A Celebration of Latin Cultures, so the colorful designs and exotic plants will be inspired by Latin music and dance.  Gardners of all levels participate in this event to show off their creativity with the colors and design of their flower arrangements.  Rosecliff is the perfect backdrop for this event and is a beautiful Mansion to visit any time of the year, not just during the Flower Show.

The Opening Night Cocktail party is held on the 22nd and there will be food and wine and all kinds of surprises to kick off this wonderful event.  The following days will be filled with flower designs and shopping at the Oceanside Boutiques and Gardeners’ Marketplace.  All proceeds of this event go to the Preservation Society for the restoration and maintenance of the land and gardens.
