The Newport Paper & Book Arts Festival, and its sponsor, the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts (OCCA) celebrate over a quarter-century of of growing and nurturing the field of paper and book arts! Thank you for being a part of this creative journey.

The Friends of the Festival contribute to NPBAF sustainability and development, ensuring the festival can meet its future needs and maintain its quality and breadth – serving participants and instructors alike. OCCA will be looking to offer scholarships and other learning opportunities as well.

Membership in Friends of the Festival comes with a donation of as little as $50. Benefits begin at a 5% discount on registration fees for festival workshops. Donations are tax-deductible. Please visit the NPBAF donation page and choose the Newport Paper & Book Arts Festival under “Program” to see the options for levels of support and details about benefits at each level.

You can also send checks payable to OCCA, with “VAC/Friends of the Festival” in the note line, to OCCA, PO Box 1315, Newport, OR 97365.

As always, we appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you at NPBAF in April 2024!
