An Authentic Working Waterfront That Invites You To Come And Play

NOAA MOC-P Dedication & Open House

The NOAA MOC-P Dedication and Open House event on August 20-21, 2011 was a wonderful community event and the weather couldn't have been better. Speakers included Newport Mayor Mark McConnell, Port Commission President JoAnn Barton and General Manager Don Mann, Senator Ron Wyden, Governor John Kitzhaber, Congressman Kurt Schrader, Rear Admirals Jonathan Bailey and Michael Devany, and Dr. Jane Lubchenco. Music was provided by Clean Slate. The crowd on Saturday and Sunday was estimated at approximately 3,500. Local sponsors and donors were generous and the event was an example of Newport hospitality at its finest.
