Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020!

As Christmas fast approaches and with 2020 right around the corner, thank you to everyone who frequents our local shops & restaurants and for bringing friends and family to enjoy the historic waterfront! 

Happy Holidays from Bowen’s Wharf 

We’re humbled to be a part of family traditions for the past 50 years and welcome everyone to walk through the wharf to feel the holiday magic in the air! For those last-minute shoppers out there, our local boutiques are open daily with deals that will thrill you and those on your list too! Many of our shops and restaurants offer gift cards, making it even easier to check everyone off your list. So grab your friends, shop around, and enjoy a bite to eat (perhaps with a seasonal cocktail or two).  


Annual Christmas Tree Lighting 

The first Saturday in December was extra-illuminating this year since we started at noon and exp anded into an all-day affair, filled with crafts, music, food, and fun with Miss Rhode Isl and and Anchor the Alpaca at our Christmas Village. The Aquidneck L and Trust donated this year’s beautiful tree from Spruce Acres. If you couldn’t make, enjoy a snapshot of the day below and we hope you can join us for our 50th annual Christmas Tree Lighting, December 5th next year! 


Faces of the Wharf 

In celebration of 50 years in business in Newport, we decided to highlight the merchants who you see at Bowen’s Wharf every time you come for a day or night out. Be sure to follow us on social or view the Faces of the Wharf on our website, where we highlight our business owners and their stories. 

A few words from Bart Dunbar, President of Bowen’s Wharf Co., explaining the culture of Bowen’s Wharf and the history behind the bustling waterfront.
