Newport Seafood & Wine Festival, Oregon

Newport, OR

Oregon's Newport Seafood & Wine Festival, established in 1978, is an annual winter festival that highlights the region's bounty of the sea and vine. Among the events are wine competitions (both commercial and amateur); wine tastings from California, Oregon, and Washington vintners; and seafood dishes with local Dungeness crab, calamari, and salmon. The festival is held the last full weekend of February each year; admission in 2007 ranged from $7 to $13, depending on day of attendance.
