We are a private, not-for-profit business membership association designed to meet the needs of the business community in making Newton, Iowa and Jasper County a great place to live and do business.
Every summer Newton comes together for "NewtonFest", which is the celebration of all things Newton! The Newton Chamber of Commerce is pleased to join in on this long weekend of fun with our "Cool Cars" Car Show. This show is for all car enthusiasts whether your car is a classic, or just plain cool. Participation is free and you have the opportunity to win our "Best of Show" trophy or our "People's Choice" Award! Show off your car in front of thousands of spectators and gawkers. While you are there you will also enjoy a live DJ playing your favorite class tunes. There is something for everybody at NewtonFest, and our car show is a fun chance to stroll down memory lane with cars from many decades. This event is free to attend as well, so bring the family down and enjoy a good old fashioned car
This year will feature Butch Patrick who played Eddie Munster on the hit TV Show the Munsters along with his famous classic cars, the Drag-u-la and the Munster Kooch. We will also be hosting a bubble gum blowing contest as well as a hula hoop contest for all ages, with the opportunity to win a prize. Car Show will be from 10am - 4pm. If you are bringing your car to park, parking starts at 9am!
