Plant lovers will think they have died and gone to heaven. Rosecliff Mansion, one of Newport’s most famous historic Gilded Age homes, traditionally hosts the event.

Each Newport Flower Show has its own theme and this year’s is “Fete des Fleurs” (French for “Festival of Flowers”).

The Newport Flower Show 2016

Newport Flower Show 2016The Newport Flower Show, held every year at the Rosecliff Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, is the “must see” event of the season – scheduled this year for June 24th through the 26th, 2016.

A superb seaside flower and garden show, the Newport Flower Show is unlike any other event of its type.

“Gilded: Artful Living” is the theme for Newport Flower Show 2016. The Gilded Age was a time of intentional beauty among the upper-classes. Nearly every aspect of life was elevated to an art form, with gardens, homes, and fashions serving as treasures fit for a carefully curated gallery.

This year’s theme is quite apropos, given where the show is held each year. A good percentage of what makes this flower show stand out from its peers can be chalked up to the venue – the opulent, Gilded Age setting of Rosecliff Mansion, with its classic architecture, sweeping views, and delightful ocean breezes.
