As part of the 13 Villages, One Community campaign, the City of Newton is partnering with residents and businesses to hold the first annual Newtonville Village Day and Jazz Festival.
The event will feature a variety of activities for individuals of all ages, according to a press release from the city. Among the attractions will be amusement rides in the parking lot of the Newton Senior Center, arts and crafts booths, face painting, live jazz presented by New England Jazz Productions, Climb-a-Truck for kids in the Austin Street parking lot, and a variety of dance presentations.
Newtonville Village Day will take place on Saturday, Sept. 29 from 10 a.m. to dusk, and is free and open to all.
Mayor Setti Warren launched the 13 Villages, One Community campaign earlier this summer, to help promote some of Newton's many features, and expand the level of community engagement in every village across the city.
According to the city, an important component of the 13 Villages, One Community campaign is working closely with the business community, and promoting commerce across the city. The city says that Newtonville Village Day is the "result of a strong partnership between the city, residents, and several businesses who have all pitched in to make this event possible."
