WELCOME TO NEW CASTLE,
New Castle Patriotic Festival Honoring
(formerly New Castle Spring
Saturday June 14, 2014
from 11 am-10 pm
We are pleased to
announce that on June 14th, the New Castle Patriotic
Festival will once again be honoring World War II Veterans
for their service during WWII. This year, those WWII
Veterans participating in the Festival will serve as Grand
Marshalls during the parade being held at at 11 a.m.
Following the parade, presentations will be made on the
courthouse square to these American Heroes of the Greatest
Generation. From 12 noon to 2 p.m. the public will have the
opportunity to meet these WWII Veterans at the New Castle
First Baptist Church, located at 47 East Cross Main in New
Castle. There will also be a small display of WWII
memorabilia for visitors to see.
This may be one of the
largest gatherings of WWII Vets in Kentucky in recent years.
Participating in the Festival will be WWII Vets who battled
their way across France into Germany, Vets who fought in the
Pacific, and other Vets who flew over the “hump” in the
China Burma India Theatre of WWII.
As America celebrates the
70th anniversary of D-Day on June 6 this year, lets honor
these WWII Vets while we can. They are leaving us at a rate
of 600 – 1,000 per day. Please come out and honor these
American Heroes in New Castle on June 14th, and enjoy all
that the New Castle Patriotic Festival has to offer. For the

is located in Henry County, Kentucky, just 35 minutes northeast of
Louisville, off I-71 and is one of the oldest cities in Kentucky.
New Castle was settled in the 1790’s and became the county seat when
Henry County was established in 1798.
With approximately 1000
people, New Castle is one of the smallest towns in Kentucky with a
preservation district and is certified in both “Kentucky Main Street" and “Preserve America”
Programs. We are very proud of our efforts to preserve our
historical buildings and rural heritage. As Wendell Berry, who was
born here said, “Our history makes us what we are today, and our
future depends on our past”.
New Castle has one of
the few remaining intact 19th Century courthouse squares in
Kentucky. The homes and commercial buildings allow us glimpses of
the rich architectural history of our city. A tractor on Main Street
is as common as a car, truck, or school bus. This is what makes us a
unique rural community.
to New Castle!
