The 2020 Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival
September 17 - September 20
The 2020 Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival is on track for September 17-20, 2020. Given the effects the coronavirus pandemic has had on large gatherings and events, festival-goers can expect a new and innovative kind of experience this year.
“With so many events in Newport canceled this summer, we are especially looking forward to hosting the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival in September,” said Preservation Society Executive Director and CEO Trudy Coxe. “Everyone is looking for a chance to relax and have some fun, and we guarantee this will be fun. We hope you will join us.”
Please watch The Preservation Society of Newport County’s social media, including the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival Facebook page for developments.
Face covers are required of all visitors and staff members when moving around inside the houses and on the grounds. Face covers may be removed when seated at a seminar or a dining table during the event.
Social distancing is mandatory and the flow of guests through Rosecliff will be supervised in accordance with CDC guidelines during the event.
