New England’s Premier Flower Show!
The Newport Flower show offers group visitors three days of fun, flowers, food, fantastic shopping experiences, spectacular garden displays and so much more, all located in and around one of America's most beautiful and storied Gilded Age mansions, Rosecliff.
American ornothologist and painter John James Audubon (1785-1851) declared that he only came alive when "in the field" of his wild new land. His artful hand created a pictorial journal not only of the birds he loved but also of their habitats. Join us as we travel with this visionary naturalist in our own Artistic Adventure.

Commissioned by Nevada silver heiress Theresa Fair Oelrichs in 1899, Rosecliff is modeled after the Grand Trianon, the garden retreat of French kings at Versailles. Boasting Newport’s largest ballroom, Rosecliff became the setting for many of Newport's most lavish parties, including the famous White Ball in 1904. It offers a spectacular view overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and other Newport Mansions up and down the world-famous Cliff Walk.
