Newburgh holds a special place in American history as a city of innovation and invention. It was one of the earliest American cities to be electrified when Edison built its power plant and wired it up in 1883. In 1939, RCA test-marketed television there.
At the Newburgh Illuminated Festival, celebrate both the city’s rich history as well as its present-day innovations.
Participants enjoy art workshops and exhibits, a flower show, choral and musical performances, a motorcycle run, tours of historic sites, a marketplace, health fair, demonstrations, children’s activities, military drills, and more.
