Newberry’s Annual Events

Everybody loves a good celebration, so the City of Newberry gives people great reasons to celebrate. The following are City of Newberry sponsored (and beloved) annual events:


Christmas in Newberry is a magical time of year! The season kicks off with Main Street Lights: Community Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, located in front of Community Hall, through festive song and fellowship. Main St. is transformed for an evening of Christmas fun! You can peruse Downtown for early Christmas shopping treasures and bring your family for a bite to eat after the show! Annually we have new additions to our Downtown décor and plenty to do for all ages. After the lighting be sure to stick around for street musicians playing your favorite Christmas tunes. Be sure to come back and visit downtown on Fridays in December for North Pole Nights- visit Santa by our faux snow machines and stay for storytime with Mrs. Claus.

The Newberry Pork in the Park features mouth-watering BBQ from across the southeast and gives you a chance to taste the competitors' best! You and your family can also enjoy live music as well as kids' inflatables and activities. Bring your family out to feast on some of the best barbecue in the South! Held annually in April.



Newberry Juneteenth celebrates freedom at this annual street festival  features Black owned businesses that represent and elevate our Newberry community, including delicious cuisine and quality arts, live locally grown entertainment, and history on the importance of this day of independence. Celebrate culture and community with us! Details coming soon.


The Newberry Oktoberfest is a festival celebrating German heritage in Newberry, with enough art, entertainment, and children's activities to satisfy the whole family! And the best part is that it's all for free! This festival has seen crowds of over 20,000, making it Newberry's largest event, so come on down and join this year's fun!
