Curtis Fest Artisan Spotlight: Newton Booth Builds

Local lumber and recycled wood sources


Nils and David started as childhood best friends in the forests of rural Northeastern Vermont. As young adults they each pursued various trades and ventures in Brooklyn, NY until California began calling to them and their desire to be full time carpenters intensified. They each found their way to Northern California, where Sacramento’s culture and economy provided the springboard for their dream.

Newton Booth Builds was created out of a desire to do what we love and combine art with functionality. From our shop in the Newton Booth neighborhood of Sacramento, California we hand select new, salvaged and reclaimed lumber for our home accessories and furniture. Each piece is handmade, one-of-a-kind, and a specific expression of its maker. We work with local lumber and recycled wood sources to bring you the highest quality, sustainable products.”

About Curtis Fest

Curtis Fest returns to William Curtis Park on Sunday, Aug. 27. More than 60 artisans are expected to show their work at the 11th annual event, which will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the north end of the park under the beautiful tree canopy. Curtis Fest has become a Sacramento favorite, and many premier artists have joined the lineup this year.

This free, public event includes food from award winning chef Keith Breedlove of the Culinerdy Cruzer food truck along with delicious street tacos from the Turnt Up food truck. John Merriman, Dianna and the Cherry Kings and the Ranell Carpenter Band will perform.

An expanded petting zoo returns this year as well as the climbing station, and the children’s fairy. Curtis Fest will be followed by Music in the Park from 6-8 p.m.
