Newton Community Pride


Community Services Nonprofit

About Us

Founded by volunteers in 1989 in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, Newton Community Pride supports and helps fund arts, culture and community events in the City of Newton. Our events and programs are funded primarily through business sponsorships and donations. We rely heavily on volunteers throughout the year for support.

Some of our events include the Linda Plaut Festival of the Arts, NewtonSERVES, 4th of July Fireworks, Beautification, Concerts, Drive-In Movies, Halloween Windows, and Public Art.
