View from Fort Adams of Narragansett Bay

WBGO Travel & Events welcomes you to join us for a day trip to one of the best festivals in the world: The 2024 Newport Jazz Festival at Fort Adams State Park in Newport, Rhode Island! Select the festival day of your choice: Friday, August 2; Saturday, August 3; and/or Sunday, August 4, 2024 and ride along with us.

WBGO provides the only "straight-to-the-gate" transportation option to the festival and with tickets for Saturday already sold out, WBGO's trips are your only way to enjoy the entire festival! We've laid out all the options so you can make the best choice. The WBGO bus will depart from Newark, NJ, then stop for a quick pick up in Manhattan, and bring you right to the door step of Fort Adams State Park. Arrive as the doors open, rested and ready to take on a day of fun, fresh air and jazz! This year we are working with a NEW transportation partner and are using luxury coaches that are state of the art and a great improvement over last year!

Purchase your tickets below, or on Eventbrite.
