The City of Newburgh unanimously passed a resolution on Monday night to co-sponsor the Newburgh Illuminated Festival. The festival will be held on June 1 2019 on Broadway. There will be hundreds of vendors, music and entertainment for the large crowds the festival draws in each year.
Paul Ernenwein, lead organizer of the event gave the city council an update on the festival, the group of volunteers works all year round to raise money through fundraisers and sponsorships.
“We are really looking to get sponsors and givers, our volunteers are on the phone and writing letters,” said Ernenwein. “Anyone that is willing to give that is willing to sponsor. This event costs 80k and that money only comes from sponsors and givers and we are not even close but we are working very hard to get there.”
There will be a fundraising event at Motorcyclepedia on April 13, from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m. with music, drinks, and entertainment.
