Since 1978 the Newport Seafood & Wine Festival has attracted visitors from around the world to the central Oregon coast. The event will be held this year Feb 20-23 at the South Beach marina in Newport. This is a premiere event not to be missed, but if you don’t like crowds, it’s not the place for you.
The event has become so popular that general admission tickets are not sold on Saturday anymore. Standby tickets may be available after 1pm depending on capacity. Saturday’s entrance will be sold via E-Tickets ONLY. They will have two E-Ticket entrances to aid with the flow of the line. Be advised that many people arrive during peak hours (11am-3pm). Saturday e tickets are available online through this link: http://www.etix.com/ticket/online/venueSearch.jsp?venue_id=4720&performance_id=1776040&language=en&country=US
Parking is available at the festival site for $5.00. Cab service is also available for a nominal fee. Please don’t drink and drive!
The best day to go is Sunday because the wineries sometimes have special pricing on wine. They would rather sell the wine than have to haul it back home. The crowds are usually a little thinner on Sunday as well.
If you’re planning on going, book your vacation home early. This is a popular event and we fill up fast!
