Our Mission

Founded on the principle of promoting local arts, the mission of the New Castle Arts Festival is to establish a destination event that will celebrate the diverse arts and culture of New Castle’s heritage to enhance the life of the community and promote the prosperity of the city.

What started out in 2009 in downtown New Castle has found a new home at the beautiful Cascade Park.  We’ve gone from a one day, one block event to a two day event in the park.

Taking place at the start of summer, the New Castle Art Fest is a great way to get to know the people who embody the spirit of our region. You’ll love the park setting, the shade and the sound of the falls.

The rows of booths representing regional artwork are as diverse as the music and food, including painters, sculptors, blown glass, photography and handcrafted jewelry.
