Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and uncertainty about when large scale events will be able to go ahead, we have unfortunately decided to cancel Newtown Festival for 2020.
This decision has not been taken lightly, however the health and safety of our community and festival attendees are our priority.
We would like to say a big thank you to all past artists, stall holders, local businesses, sponsors and festival goers who have supported Newtown Festival, and Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, for the past 41 years. It is a rare thing now for a community event to run consistently for all these years and this is an event which is truly “by the people, for the people”.
We know this will be disappointing for many people and we will keep you posted on future plans once the health situation is in hand. We are sure something special will emerge for the future.
We thank you for your understanding during these uncertain times. Our thoughts are with those who are being directly impacted, particularly the many artists, musicians and small businesses who have given their time and talent so generously to support our fundraising event over many years.
If you have any questions, or ideas you want to share for the future, please contact Georgia Carter, Fundraising and Marketing Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0438 734 920.
