2012 marks the suburb of Newtown's 150th birthday, and to
celebrate, Newtown Neighbourhood Centre is throwing a party not to
forget. Camperdown Memorial Rest Park will once again don its
bunting and flags as it is transformed into a bohemian playground
for the annual Newtown Festival.
Newtown Festival is one of Sydney's largest and longest running free community festivals, and the 2012 festival will celebrate the Newtown community's passion for tolerance, diversity and acceptance. More than 60,000 people gather at the festival each year to experience a vibrancy of community expression through music, the arts and grassroots creativity.
