Be in the mainstreet of Newtown on Fair Day. Closed to vehicles, Riddiford Street is turned into a community party – the perfect opportunity for local groups, businesses & performers to showcase themselves to the public & for us all to celebrate Newtown.
At this, the 20th Newtown Festival Street Fair, many of the local restaurants will be serving delicious food outside, supplied fresh from their kitchens.
Newtown’s shops and local businesses will be joined by over 380 other stall holders & community groups selling an enormous range of goods, reflecting the diversity of the people who come together for this event. Stall sites fill both sides of the main street & into the adjoining side streets.
A performance based street fair with live music, colourful costumes and dance all day entertainment is provided by community groups, local musicians and Wellington bands. The depth of talent in wider Wellington comes to our community for this once a year street party.
