The 29th annual Newtown Festival will be held on 11 November, offering eight hours of free entertainment.
The festival at Camperdown Memorial Rest Park, which attracts about 80,000 people and is an integral part of the inner-west community calendar, will have a spectacular line-up of music, authors, dog shows, kids’ activities, street theatre, competitions and workshops.
Festival Director Sue Andersen, who has been involved with the festival for seven years, said the day helped cement the community and its identity.
“It is a meeting place for all socio-economic groups where people can come along and just have a good time,” she said.
Although entry is free, there will be gold coin donation points around the park. Money raised is given to the Newtown Neighborhood Centre to fund its programs for the disadvantaged.
