A mix of clouds and sun early, then becoming cloudy later in the day. Slight chance of a rain shower (20%). High 76F. Winds NE at 10 to 15 mph.

New Freedom Fest has always been a “Rain or Shine” event. At this point, the plan is to continue with the fest. Should the forecast change, any cancellation notice will be posted here. Vendors would also receive an email directly.

Let stay positive! No rain!!!!! …but bring a raincoat and umbrella just in case.

Thank you.

New Freedom Fest is an old-time “festival of small town life”. It includes music, arts and crafts, animals, food, games, a pie eating contest, an art tent with pumpkin painting, and much, much more – all centered around the beautiful and historic town of New Freedom, Pennsylvania.
