Feed the Weed!

NewTown’s 20th Anniversary Celebration and Fundraiser

You’re invited!

Join us as NewTown celebrates twenty years as a persistent weed in the garden of art with our biggest event of the year. Since 1995, NewTown has presented over 675 innovative artists in every discipline to over 400,000 people, many of the events free and in public spaces. We’ve stuck around a long time and couldn’t have done it without you.

Now come celebrate with us in typical NewTown style with an afternoon of art installations, performances, spoken word, and live music by 34 leading L.A. and nationally acclaimed artists. Many works have been created especially for the event, with a few surprises that you won’t want to miss. And of course, food and drink.

This event is also a fundraiser committed to supporting NewTown’s working artists and innovative programming for the future. So please help FEED THE WEED while celebrating in our garden of art!
