Welcome to The Newburgh Illuminated Festival
The Newburgh Illuminated Festival is an event designed to celebrate the rich history of the City of Newburgh.
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 1884. In 1939, RCA test marketed television here!
That spirit continues, and the Newburgh Illuminated Festival celebrates the rich history and tradition, while highlighting the passion, innovation and excitement of the current day.
