Thank you for your patience while the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts has worked through the best course of action for the 2020 Newport Paper & Books Arts Festival.

We are sad to say there will not be a Newport Paper & Book Arts Festival in 2020. The resurgence of COVID-19 in the area has closed most of our venues. We are planning the 25th Anniversary festival for September 9-12, 2021 The Oregon Coast Council for the Arts is so fortunate that the Newport Paper & Book Arts Festival is such a wonderful community. You have all been so kind and shown excitement with the rescheduled festival. We look forward to seeing you in September.

The 25 for $25 Project will take place in April. Any items that you have already sent in will be kept safe until then.

The 25th Anniversary Invitational Show will be moved to 2021 to coincide with the festival.

Best wishes from Newport.
