Festival Information & Location

Every September, we gather at Lake Boren Park for our annual community festival packed with activities, food, games, music, and fun for all ages. This signature Newcastle event falls in September because that's the month in 1994 when we officially became a city. Newcastle Days is a chance for folks to come together, honor our past, and celebrate the spirit of community today and into the future.

Join friends and neighbors this year as we celebrate our 30th Anniversary as the City of Newcastle!
