Mr Peter Frater, Newtown Festival's appointed Event Manager announced the dates of the 2005 Newtown Festival.

Building on the success of the 2004 Festival held last March, the 2005 Newtown Festival will commence on Friday 4 March 2005and continue until Sunday 13 March.

The main event that attracts in excess of 40000 people to Riddiford St in Newtown, the Newtown Fair Day will be held on Sunday 6 March 2005 where Riddiford Street will be closed to vehicular traffic.

The Festival relies on the support of many organisations, businesses of Newtown and funders. Mr Frater in making the announcement at a recent meeting of the Rotary Club of Wellington South stated that he looked forward to the continued involvement of these supporters and the particular contribution of Rotary in the event.

The Festival is a week of community celebrations including the popular and award winning "Culture Jam" and the Gay & Lesbian Fair, both of which will held in Newtown School.

Following discussions in the Community and with organisers of some other community events, Newtown Festival Fair Day will in future be held on the first Sunday of March each year.
