This year you’ll enjoy ‘The Rare Occasions,’ 2014 WBRU Rock Hunt winners, and semi-finalists ‘Smith & Weeden.’ Both bands are well known throughout New England, performing all over Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Hampshire. And I know all of you Luau veterans will be glad to see Napua O’Polynesia Polynesian dancers come back. You’ll also be mesmerized by The Fire Gypsy, who comes on stage after the sun sets.”

Or just kick back and enjoy the fun. Make sure to visit the merchandise vendors and join in on the raffle to win some awesome prizes.”

Luau attendee, Jeff Winchell says, “The Luau brings a great experience between the Fire Gypsy, Polynesian Dancers, Newport Storm and the local food vendors. All of that at the historic and beautiful Fort Adams State Park cannot be beat. This is my favorite event of the summer because not only is it a blast to go to with friends, but it also feels great to know that the proceeds go to Fort Adams – a Newport staple.”
