Speak Up Newport President Edward Selich has announced that the 40th Annual Mayor’s Dinner, originally scheduled for February, has been rescheduled to May 19, 2022.

The rescheduled dinner will be held at Newport Beach’s newest hotel, VEA Newport Beach (formerly the Newport Beach Marriott). In addition to attending the Mayor’s Dinner, this will be an early opportunity to experience this reimagined hotel and all that is has to offer.

Although it is occurring later than normal, the Speak Up Newport Board felt it was important to continue the tradition of the Mayor’s Dinner and not cancel it again this year.

The rescheduled event will have all the traditional elements of the Mayor’s Dinner and will remain as in past years, including Mayor Kevin Muldoon giving a State of the City Address.

Tickets and underwriters tables can be purchased at
