Loose Caboose Festival


Join us for our 15th 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 this 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.
