Since 1978 the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival has attracted visitors from around the world to the central Oregon coast. The 2016 festival will be packed with all of the fun, food and wine you've come to know and love at the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival!

2016 Event Hours:

  • Thursday, Feb 25th: 5pm-9pm

  • Saturday, Feb 27th: 10am-6pm
  • Sunday, Feb 28th: 10am-4pm

Saturday continues to be the most attended day at the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival. In an effort to maintain safety and accommodate large crowds, we have made some adjustments to entry procedure and crowd management.

There will be NO General Admission available on Saturday. Standby tickets MAY be available after 1pm depending on capacity. Saturday’s entrance will be sold via E-Tickets ONLY. We will have two E-Ticket entrances to aid with the flow of the line. Be advised that many of our patrons arrive during peak hours (11am-3pm).

We anticipate that the adjustments we have made will improve crowd flow, however patrons who arrive during peak hours should expect a delay in entrance. Event Staff will be readily available to provide information.
