The Newport International Boat Show is committed to producing an event that ensures the safety and well-being of its exhibitors, sponsors, attendees, staff, and the entire community. The Show will follow and comply with all recommended safety protocols and guidelines put forth by state and local health officials. Though mask wearing outdoors has not been mandated in Rhode Island at this time, Show organizers recommend that they be worn inside tents and seminar rooms. In addition, many boat dealers will require masks for boarding their vessels. For a complete list of the Show's safety protocols, visit here.

Newport is a popular vacation destination. The Show, located in a historic New England town, is a resource for educating the boating public and is also an active marketplace that results in millions of dollars of revenue from various boats and boat-related products. The Show has a significant multi-million-dollar economic impact on Newport County and Rhode Island providing a great end-of-summer boost for the region.

Gates Open September 16th at 10:00 a.m.
