The annual Newport International Boat Show is coming up this September. From the 17-20th, Newport’s famed waterfront will feature boats, marine products, and the most stylish nautical dog apparel money can buy. We mean Our Good Dog Spot, of course!
We were vendors at the last NIBS, and the experience was positively amazing. The atmosphere was everything we could ask for and more, and the people who stopped by were very friendly and enthusiastic. We knew we wanted to return this year, and made it happen.
We introduced our original Love My Dog line of collars & leads at last year’s show. In order to make this year’s trip as memorable as last year’s, we’ll be introducing new designs this year, too. We’re not quite ready to reveal exactly what we’ve been working on, but we can show you a little peek.
The Newport International Boat Show turns 13 acres of Newport, Rhode Island’s waterfront into the premier sailboat and powerboat show waters of New England. For four days, all makes and models of sailboats and powerboats will be on display, prepped and ready for boarding and review. On the shore, nautical equipment dealers will be there to display their products and answer all your questions. The show is truly an international event, featuring vendors, sponsors, and boats from countries across the globe.
Newport makes a truly ideal setting for such a prestigious show. With coastlines on the west, south, and east, it is a thoroughly maritime city. Its waterfront is beautiful and teeming with boats all season long, from commercial fishing boats to personal sailboats, powerboats, and yachts.
While you’re in Newport, there are plenty of things to see outside of the boat show. Take a stroll down nearby Bellevue Avenue and visit the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the inspiration for our recent Bellevue Collection (which was a huge hit at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championships in July!). You can also visit the harborfront and explore Bannister’s Wharf, Bowen’s Wharf, and Long Wharf– the inspirations for our adorable Anchors Aweigh collection. Our love for Newport shows through our entire collection of Our Good Dog Spot Originals!
If you’re planning to attend, come by Tent B and say hi! We’d love to see you, and you can pick something up to take home to your pup after the show!
Every dog should look this good.
