Saturday, August 2nd, 9:00am - 5:30pm at the Newport Performing Arts Center
Ticket required for admission.
The Aquarium organized the festival in partnership with Westwind Stewardship Group (WSG) in hopes that viewers will, in the words of Aquarium President/CEO Carrie Lewis, “Walk away feeling renewed, optimistic and connected to the ocean.”
The Festival’s compilation of cinematography, discussion panels and lectures are designed to change the way guests think about their relationship with the ocean.
The event will be followed by a beach clean-up effort hosted by the Newport Chapter of the SurfRider Foundation on Sunday, August 3 from 10:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. People interested in participating should meet at the Moolack Beach Parking Area with water to stay hydrated, reusable gloves and sturdy footwear. Surfrider will provide participants with refreshments, information and bags to use for the clean-up.
Admission price for the entire festival, including meals, is $25. Tickets are available at www.aquarium.org or by calling (541) 867-3474.
