Since 1965, when the State of Rhode Island acquired the site, Fort Adams has been a state park that includes facilities for sailing, athletics, and other recreational activities. The fort has also been the setting for groundbreaking musical celebrations, such as the Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals, which were founded in 1954 and 1959 respectively.
