Market Day 2016

Newtown’s Historic Association sponsors Market Day every year on the first weekend in October. This event has been held successfully for over 30 years and has become a Newtown tradition. Market Day is dependent on the many hours of work done by volunteers. Without the efforts of the community, we could not produce this event.

High School Students can earn credit for LINCS and other volunteer requirements. Scout troops and other organizations are encouraged to participate in this community event. Activities for volunteers include things like: helping with set-up and clean-up, soda selling, assistance with street posting, etc.

If you are interested in helping with Market Day this year or if you have questions about volunteering, please call (215) 968-4004 and leave a message oe email
