Market Day 2022

We would like to thank the community of artists, vendors, volunteers, NHA members and sponsors who supported Newtown Market Day this year. Although the weather didn’t cooperate, the amount of community support shown was so incredibly positive that we feel the weekend was as successful as it could have been. With a sold out Friday night event prior to Market Day, and all the artists who have already committed to next year’s event, we know that the Annual Newtown Market Day October 7th, 2023 will be brilliant.

We wish you all a wonderful holiday season and hope to see you for our incredible upcoming events as we set our sights on the future.

Market Day is an annual outdoor event that celebrates the colonial tradition of local farmers & homesteaders bringing their crops, livestock, and homemade wares into town to sell to neighbors & townspeople. It is our proud tradition to feature high-quality crafters, artisans & fine artists; colonial-era demonstrations, reenactments & activities; farm stands; entertainment for all ages; and food from local restaurants.

This event is organized by a team of dedicated volunteers and community members. All proceeds from Market Day support the Newtown Historic Association.
