2017 marks the 10th Anniversary of Newtown’s Annual Earth Day Festival and we couldn’t be more excited as we are holding it on the same date as the national event — Saturday April 22nd!! So make sure your calendars are blocked to spend some time with us at the Newtown Middle School and help us celebrate.
Like year’s past, our festival is a full-day of family fun and learning designed to highlight Newtown’s abundant natural resources while also helping our town learn how to become a bit “greener”. From tons of kids’ activities, live music, a Birds of Prey Exhibit, and tasty food to our vendor fair, Silent Auction, and the Lions Club “Lose the Litter“, it’s a memorable day for the whole community!
To invest in the future, proceeds support our annual “green” scholarship for Newtown High School graduates. Help us to grow the scholarship by becoming a Festival Vendor or an Underwriter this year.
With increased interest from the community and local businesses, we also need volunteers to help with everything from set-up to promotions and onsite activities. If you would like to help out, see our Volunteer page – we welcome your heart and hands!
It’s gonna be a great day again, all we need is you!
