All tickets to all aftershow benefits are now SOLD OUT.  Thank you for supporting the Newport Festivals Foundation.



Purchase parking at the same time you purchase your tickets or use the links below to buy parking in advance – otherwise parking will be $20.00 per day on festival weekend. As parking is limited and we love Mother Earth, carpooling is encouraged!


All festival seating is general admission. At the Fort Stage, there is a designated standing only area, as well as a designated area where chairs and blankets are allowed but not provided. Patrons may bring blankets and low-backed beach chairs (under 30”). The designated seating area at the Fort Stage is on a first-come, first-served basis. Folding chair sections at the smaller stages are also first-come, first-served. The Festival runs rain or shine.


Children under 3 are free! Children’s tickets are available for youth ages 3-12, but must be purchased in conjunction with an Adult ticket. Single day, 2-day, and 3-day options are available when purchasing an adult ticket through the links above.


If you lost your Print-at-Home ticket you can print another copy, but if you’re worried someone might find and try to use it, please call Ticketmaster Customer Service at 1-800-653-8000 to get a replacement ticket with a brand-new barcode – that way only you can get in!

If the paper ticket you bought online or by phone is lost, stolen, damaged, or destroyed please call Ticketmaster Customer Service at 1-800-653-8000 they will just need your order confirmation number or the credit card used for purchase. Note: Ticketmaster tickets turn black in hot spots (direct sunlight, etc.) because we print on heat-sensitive paper – please keep your tickets cool!

Please help the Foundation to continue the Newport Jazz Festival® as it has since 1954 in the presentation of the greatest jazz performers who follow the traditions of New Orleans, swing, bebop and modal as the core and heart of jazz music; and to continue the Newport Folk Festival® by maintaining the excellence of folk artists as it has since 1959, in the tradition of Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and others.
