This year the Newtown Arts Festival celebrated It’s 10th Anniversary. The Newtown Cultural Arts Commission established the Newtown Arts Festival in 2012 to promote and support local arts and the community through arts-inspired entertainment, education, exhibits and sales. The festival showcases all forms of creative expression, such as visual arts, dance and music in the setting of a town-wide celebration. Proceeds will support grants and scholarships for local artists and arts organizations, future festivals, and other work of the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission.
