Newport Folk will be doing things a little differently this year. We’ll be extending our dates to present two unique 3-day events of surprise performances, storytelling, and workshops at Fort Adams – July 23rd – July 25th and July 26th – July 28th, 2021.

 

EARLY BIRD 2021 MEMBER UPDATE

**UPDATE: ALL MEMBERS ARE GUARANTEED THE 3-DAY EVENT OF THEIR CHOICE** 

We are pleased to announce that although we will still be operating at a reduced capacity this summer, due to new guidelines set by the State of Rhode Island and the Department of Health, all members can now choose which 3-day event they would like to attend this summer. There is no need to rank your preferences.

Please submit this form to let us know which 3-day event you would like to purchase tickets for this summer. You also have the option to defer your membership to 2022.

We are working directly with the State of Rhode Island and the Department of Health to determine the proper safety protocols for this summer. No matter what, we will follow the guidance of all city and state officials to keep you safe. Ticket holders may be subject to certain health protocols required at the time of the event, which can include; temperature checks, proof of a negative COVID test or vaccination, social distancing and wearing masks. We will provide more information as the event date gets closer so you will know exactly what to expect.
