Newtown Festival - Newtown
One of Sydney's largest community events, Newtown Festival encapsulates the spirit of Newtown's vibrant creative, conscientious, and inclusive community.
From humble beginnings, the festival has grown to become the flagship of Newtown's burgeoning creative scene, and a landmark event on Sydney's cultural calendar. Each year over 90,000 people come together to experience its smorgasbord of music, the arts, and grassroots creativity.
This year's festival, themed 'Newtopia', promises to continue growing bigger and better, while maintaining its core values of diversity, community engagement and environmental sustainability.
The festival is presented annually by the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre, raising funds to support the invaluable work it does with the local community. Gold coin donations at the gate go directly towards programs at the centre, providing services for vulnerable and disadvantaged people.
