Lighting of the Bay

November 24 @ 4:30 pm - December 31 @ 10:00 pm

Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is pleased to present the 33rd annual Lighting of the Bay beginning at dusk on Friday, November 24, and continuing nightly through New Year’s Eve. In honor of the upcoming holiday season, the serene, waveless bay will transform each evening into a vibrant winter wonderland featuring more than fifty lighted holiday decorations and Christmas trees.

Get cozy while roasting marshmallows for s’mores around a beach bonfire. Newport Dunes’ public fire pits are available on a first-come basis and s’mores kits can be purchased from our onsite market.

Coming to Newport Dunes this winter: Ice Skating Rink! Glide into the holiday season with ice skating and festive concessions with waterfront views. Details to come.

The Newport Dunes tree lot offers a hand-picked selection of farm-fresh trees from Oregon. Varieties include Noble, Nordmann, Natural and Douglas. Our lot receives weekly deliveries of fresh trees. We offer wreaths and garlands, too.
