The Jesus Saviour Church Summer Bazaar is often referred to, tongue-in-cheek, as the “Portuguese World’s Fair of Newport”. It is a big social event on the Jesus Saviour calendar and has been an enormously popular family outing for the decades that it has been offered. Folks from the surrounding area look forward to it each year.
This event starts Thursday night July 28 in the large church parking lot on Vernon Avenue in Newport and goes until Saturday night July 30th. Many game booths and food concessions are available, including games and prizes for the little ones. A large, lighted tent offers the ever-popular “lap card party”. Nightly cash prize drawings are held, and a grand prize drawing is held on Saturday night.
The permanent kitchen on the grounds offers mouth-watering specialties, including chourico sandwiches and sumptuous fava beans. Hot dogs, hamburgers, fries, malassadas, cotton candy, soft drinks and beer are also available.
It’s good fun for the whole family and a great opportunity to enjoy a warm summer evening, meet old friends and socialize. We hope to see you there!
