How to show your love of the arts
“Art is a nation’s most precious heritage. For it is in our works of art that we reveal to ourselves and to others the inner vision which guides us as a nation. And where there is no vision, the people perish.”

The Newtown Cultural Arts Commission established the Newtown Arts Festival to promote and support the local arts and community through arts-inspired entertainment, education, exhibits, and sales. The festival will showcase all forms of creative expression, such as music, dance, theatre, literary & visual arts in the setting of a town-wide celebration. Proceeds will support grants and scholarships for local artists and arts organizations, future festivals, and other work of the Newtown Cultural Arts Commission.
Join us as a vendor, demonstrator, volunteer or attendee for our first annual outdoor Newtown Arts Festival, September 15 & 16, 2012, on the Fairfield Hills campus. To find out more about this exciting event, contact Donna Mangiafico at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note to Vendors: Booths will be assigned a fee based on their location at the festival. A tiered pricing plan includes sites that vary in price from $150 for prime spots to $50. The majority of booth sites are at the mid-range price point, $75. All interested vendors should contact Stacey Olszewski (email@example.com) to discuss vendor opportunities and obtain an application. We will continue to use the jury process and all vendors must offer an art-related product or service.
