About The Event

Newington Waterfall Festival

The Newington Waterfall Festival came to be in 2000 with the idea to bring cultural enrichment to the Newington residents and bring awareness to the local merchants located in the center. The event has grown from 20 vendors to over 72 and continues to grow each year as the festival is becoming more popular with residents from the surrounding communities. Everyone looks forward to coming to this festival as it's the last hurrah for the summer.

It is a great opportunity for Newington residents to come together as a community and enjoy the festivities.

In the beginning, the committee threw around a few titles that would best depict Newington; pipestaves or waterfall. Back in the early 1800's, Newington was known for making pipestaves (it's the metal wrap that goes around a whiskey barrel). After much discussion they voted to name the festival after our waterfall located in Mill Pond... the rest is history.
