Newtown Festival

Celebrating 40 years, inspiring social change.

Sponsored by the City of Sydney

Whether you’re local or a tourist, Newtown feels like home. Our festival welcomes everyone in to our world and shows off what’s so special about our beloved suburb.

We invite you to join us on Sunday 11 November to celebrate Newtown’s uniqueness, vibrancy and accepting community – supporting individuals who need support and creating a sense of harmony in the area.

Newtown Festival is produced by Newtown Neighbourhood Centre (NNC) as its major fundraiser, and we are proud to be celebrating Newtown Festival’s 40th year this year!

The festival generates funds and awareness to enable the Centre to provide frontline services for those having it most tough in the Inner West.

The 2018 festival will once again feature music, Eco Village, Better Read Than Dead Writers Tent, Kids Zone, Sassy Treats Dog Show and close to 300 stalls selling food, beverages, arts and crafts, fashion, bespoke products and more!

Entry to the festival is an expected contribution of $5 per person (cash or pay pass at entry).

Please give generously, your big heart will help someone in our community access housing, combat isolation and stay connected or simply have support as they get older or hit a rough patch in life.

Help make Newtown Festival the biggest and best festival for social change in Australia.

See you on 11 November!
