Newtown Festival 2008 - Great 30th Birthday!

Newtown Festival started 30 years ago to raise awareness of homelessness and continued the grand tradition by raising funds and awareness for Newtown Neighbourhood Centre projects including Roomies Artspace.

The Roomies Artspace tent was open through the day in the Local Village area, with demonstrations, art classes and a drawing competition.

In 2009, the weather was beautiful and the atmosphere was great. As usual the Festival had a varied and interesting program of events from the Dog Show and Writers Tent to the multiple stages for music and performance.

80,000 people had a fabulous time, with 280 market and food stalls and environmental and art workshops (incl Roomies!)

Some performances weren't on the program but Newtown Festival is a true community event!
