Loose Caboose Festival

Join us for our 16th Annual Loose Caboose Arts and Crafts Festival!

The purpose of the Loose Caboose Festival is to provide a day full of arts, living history, entertainment and enticing foods. The annual festival provides an opportunity for our historic town to share its rich culture with the rest of the state.

The Loose Caboose Festival’s name was inspired by the infamous stand-alone red caboose that sits next to the historic Newton Depot. It is a significant and iconic piece of Newton’s history given by Senator Terry C. Burton.

If you would like to become a Arts and Craft or Food Vendor at our 16th Annual Loose Caboose Arts and Crafts Festival, applications will be available on the second week of January 2019.

We are looking forward to seeing you on March 30, 2019!
