The Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce (GNCC) is seeking community partners to support the first Newport Cider Festival, to be held on October 4-5.
This two-day event will draw tourism to Newport after the end of busy summer months. Live music, artisans, pacific northwest ciders, craft brews, and food trucks will be the highlight of this harvest-themed festival, located at the Newport National Guard Armory at 541 SW Coast Highway.
Children are welcome at the Kidz Zone where family-friendly activities will be offered. Festival hours are 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. on Friday, October 4, and 12 p.m. – 9 p.m. on Saturday, October 5. Live entertainment–including cider pressing, food preservation, and kombucha brewing–will be held Friday 5 p.m.- 9 p.m. and Saturday from 2 p.m.- 8 p.m. Tickets are $12 per adult and $8 per child with online e-tickets ($16 per adult and $10 per child at the door).
The GNCC is offering the community an opportunity to become an inaugural sponsor and the first on board to launch this event. Sponsorship includes exposure for businesses, including broad internet, website and social media recognition, booth space at the event, inclusion in media campaigns, event tickets, onsite signage and more.
