DANBURY, CT - Surrounding the most unfortunate event that transpired in Newtown, Connecticut, the question, while harboring compassion and concern, was what might be an effective way for the "Danbury Fields Forever" Music Festival to provide a contribution in connecting with the community and its victims.

"Danbury Fields Forever" is a day-long Music, Arts & Food festival taking place at Ives Concert Park, 43 Lake Avenue Ext. on the campus of Western CT State University in Danbury, CT on Saturday, August 3rd, from noon-8pm. Danbury is minutes from Newtown, CT.

While considering a range of options that will help memorialize the victims along with embracing the victims' families and community, it has been decided that the restoration of Newtown's 300-acre Dickinson Memorial Park Wetlands & Playground will create a sanctuary for wildlife and plant habitat, but moreover, a healthy environment for its visitors while enabling the occasion to immerse in the beauty and healing components of nature where greater control of thoughts and feelings are gained. The final project will spread over roughly 1.5 acres with natural elements, climbing stones, built in musical instruments and a water area with sand; an environment that provides a great way to help restore confidence and safety in the community and its children. Coming up with a charity recipient for this family-friendly music festival was spawned from a recommendation from area radio station WRKI.

100% of net proceeds from ticket sales from "Danbury Fields Forever" go to Newtown Parks & Recreation's “Dickinson Memorial Playground Fund.” The first $2 from each ticket sold will benefit the Newspapers in Education program. Tickets start at only $20.00.

Open to all ages, this returning family-friendly festival will feature 10 bands, each representing different eras or presentations of Beatles music. Another feature of the festival will be music & memorabilia booths and exhibits for fans & collectors, plus family features such as face-painting & inflatables for kids. There will be a variety of food and beverages vendors. Further information on the event can be found at website www.BeatlesMusicFestival.com.

For those who cannot attend the event but would like to contribute, make checks payable to: "Newtown Parks & Recreation Gift Fund" (with memo reference specifically noting: “Dickinson Memorial Playground Fund”) and address to: Newtown Parks & Recreation, 3 Main Street, Newtown, CT 06470.
