The annual Newport Pride weekend is happening this June 24, 25 & 26th. Newport Pride, the leading organization, has prepared a lineup of events and experiences to celebrate the community and promote love, acceptance, inclusivity, and diversity of LGBTQ+ identities. Everyone is welcome to join!


Their main events are “Pride on Bikes” a 4-mile loop around town in partnership with local non-profit Bike Newport starting from the Great Friends Meeting House to end up at the same spot to then enjoy a Pride Market & Festival with local vendors, performers & music. All happening on Saturday, June 25th, from 11 am - 4 pm. More info at

We also have a special pride pin–designed by Spence Creative–that people can purchase at locations in the area beginning in May. Businesses offer up deals that people can access throughout June with their pins. The proceeds from the pin sales support Newport Pride’s year-round programming. Business can add their deals here:
