A regional treasure just north of Spokane, Newport is just now being discovered by visitors to our nearby rivers, lakes, and wilderness areas. Designed as a ‘walkable city’, residents enjoy corner benches and wide sidewalks built to allow better accessibility to downtown shopping. Our residents enjoy excellent medical care, low cost electricity (this is true throughout the entire County!), excellent schools from elementary to the new Community College, the cultural events sponsored by The Create Place, and four distinct seasons!
Beginning in early spring through mid-September, stop by The Earth Market located at the Centennial Plaza where you can buy local items from homemade breads and jams to starter plants to crafts. Newport hosts the Newport Fair and Rodeo, the Bull-A-Rama, the Poker Paddle, Hydro-Boat Races, and Heritage Days which include tours of historical buildings, art show, Model T car show, ice cream social, and music in the Gazebo.
