About Market Day

The race ends at the Library, where the Market Day activities begin! Food trucks, music, crafters, and activities for children are planned throughout the Market area. The library will have its annual book sale as well.

For more information on Market Day visit the Newtown Historic Association website.


Volunteers are needed to assist us with this fun activity. Stay tuned for details on how to sign up and help.

Parking is available at the Methodist church parking lot at the corner of North Congress and Greene Street. On-street parking is available on North Lincoln Avenue or South Lincoln Avenue. Market Day will be on the South side of Washington Avenue, so some streets may be closed for that activity.
