Newton has seen its share of misery over the past year with last year’s tragedies and the more recent 25+ shootings and death of Aru Bains. However there is always hope! The Newton Business Improvement Association has taken the lead of the annual community festival and is focusing on the future of Newton.
Events, area beautification, safety and government advocacy are essential to the long term success of Newton. Revitalizing the area is the vital and events are a massive part of that plan.
The Newton Community Festival is a free family event, which features a day of live entertainment, diverse food and craft vendors, community and business displays, facility tours and lots of interactive fun activities for all ages.
The tradition continues with the 20th annual Newton Community Festival put on in partnership with the Newton Community Festival Committee. This fun-filled event put on by the community for the community has been hailed as an inspiring celebration that the entire family can enjoy.
