For more than 30 years, Newton Pride Corporation, known as Newton Community Pride, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit, has supported and helped fund many arts, cultural and family events for the City of Newton. These events are funded primarily through sponsorships and donations. Events include Newton Festival of the Arts, July 4th fireworks, Kids FunFest, NewtonSERVES, Spelling Bee, Heartbreak Hill road race, concerts on the Newton Center green, and more.

Pride works in conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs.

Pride is a volunteer-based organization, which relies on hundreds of volunteers each year.
