About Market Day and the Library Book Sale

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.

Parking is available at the Northeast corner of Penn and Lincoln. 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.


The help and participation of volunteers are crucial in making this event successful, fun, and safe. There are a variety of volunteer slots open.Β Check out the 5K Sign-Up Genius hereΒ or the Book Sale Sign-Up Genius here and volunteer with a friend!
