Every September, Newcastle residents gather at Lake Boren Park for a memorable community festival packed with food, music, games and activities for all. But what exactly are we celebrating? Well, Newcastle Days falls in September for a very good reason — that’s the month in 1994 that Newcastle officially became a City. Newcastle Days is a chance for our citizens to come together, honor our past and celebrate the spirit of community that shapes us today and into the future.

Join us Saturday, September 7, 2024 for this year's main event!
