The Newtown Carnival Committee has announced the postponement of the annual carnival, which was scheduled to take place on Saturday 10th June this year.

The committee has cited a lack of committee members and volunteers as the reason for the postponement, which marks the fourth year in a row that the event has been cancelled.

The Newtown Carnival is one of the highlights of the calendar year and has been a tradition for over a hundred years, bringing the community together for a day of fun and entertainment. The absence of the carnival this year is sure to be felt throughout the community, as it has become an important part of local culture.

The committee has expressed their disappointment at having to make the difficult decision to postpone the event, but they are hopeful that with more time and effort, they will be able to plan for a successful event in June 2024.

The committee is calling on the community to get involved and join the committee or volunteer for the event next year, to ensure the carnival can return as a cherished tradition in Newtown.
