The 2014 Newtown Festival Is Here!

For travellers and residents alike, the Newtown Festival is one of the most vibrant and infectiously kooky social events of the year! Always a barrel of laughs, this year’s lineup looks set to thrill and surprise. In keeping with local customs, this year’s theme is independence; accordingly, the festival organisers will declare ‘Newtown Independence Day’ on the 9th of November!

Always a good day out, the Newtown Festival is a truly local experience which must be seen to be believed. Rich in culture and diversity, the Newtown area is also well-known for its independent spirit and creative essence. Many artists, students and colourful locals pepper the suburb’s skinny streets, which are increasingly covered with boutique cafes and top-quality dining.

The 2014 Newtown Festival has long been organised by the righteous folks over at the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre. Working with the local community to guarantee a smashing time, months of hard work culminate in a peaceful and conscientious public event which is perfect for the family. As in previous years, gold coin donations will help fund programs out of the Community Centre, which specialises in offering help to disadvantaged locals.

In past years, ten of thousands have gathered to revel in the food, music and entertainment on offer. This year, more than three hundred stalls will be selling locally made goods, ranging from the hand-crafted to the sustainable. All the while, classic dishes will be served up by local culinary legends.

Event favourites include the fascinating Writer’s Tent, the eccentric Festival Dog Show, a special Kids Zone and an Eco Oasis (whatever that is), so be sure to check the program online and familiarise yourself with what’s on offer. Visit the festival website at for more information.

Try to make it along and you’re sure to have a truly memorable day among the locals! See you there!
