A heart-felt “thank you” to everyone who made our Newtown Festival Street Fair Day on March 5th so fantastic – the creative performing artists and technical crew, the 460 stall-holders, the hundreds of volunteers on the day and the talented team who help in the weeks leading up to the event, the zero waste team, and all the other helpers and providers.
Tens of thousands of wonderful people came from near and far to celebrate with us and enjoy a world of music, dance and performance, sporting and crafting activities, and the magnificent range of goods, delicious food, and information on offer from the market stalls. Special thanks to WCC for their huge support, and to all the other sponsors and funders who make the day possible. Thank you! You all made Newtown Festival a fabulous day.
