The Bus Stops Here, and takes you straight to the gate of the world famous Newport Jazz Festival!

WBGO Travel welcomes you to join us for a day trip to one of the best festivals in the world: The 66th Newport Jazz Festival in Newport, Rhode Island! Choose a fun filled day of your choice! The festival takes place Friday August 7th, Saturday August 8th and Sunday August 9th. Buses depart from locations in Manhattan, Newark, NJ & Boston and bring you right to the doorstep of the hippest, jazziest music-filled event of the year!

This excursion includes round trip bus travel from one of our departure locations directly to the festival gate on the day of your choice and general admission ticket to the festival for the full day.


Pickup locations include:

  • Manhattan, NY (Friday, Saturday or Sunday): Jazz at Lincoln Center, Time Warner Center, Columbus Circle - Departure time is 5:30 AM
  • Newark, NJ (Saturday only): NJPAC, 1 Center St. - Departure time is 5:30 AM
  • Boston, MA (Saturday or Sunday): Berklee College of Music, 1140 Boylston St. - Departure time is 8AM

Fort Adams State Park, the site of the iconic Newport Jazz Festival, is picturesque, pristine and, well, kind of a pain to reach. What's the best way to enjoy a full day of the music without feeling drained? WBGO provides the solution with the only "straight-to-the-gate" transportation option to the festival. 
Arrive at the festival as the doors open, rested and ready to take on a day of fun, fresh air and jazz! With convenient departure locations in Boston, Manhattan, Brooklyn and Newark, there's sure to be a day trip package that fits your needs.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, February 12 at 11AM. WBGO Member presale begins Tuesday, February 11 at 11AM.
