Newgrounds Festivals: Passing the Torch

Posted by Stanpai - November 21st, 2022

Hey everyone! Stanpai here with an update regarding the future of the Newgrounds Festivals community.

In early 2021, I felt a longing for the world of conventions. The COVID pandemic destroyed any semblance of normalcy in the world of live events, and with it came the loss of community events that brought the masses together to celebrate things they love.

It was with this in mind that I conjured the Newgrounds Summer Festival. It was a simple enough idea, and something of an endless handbag of possibilities. With the blessing of @TomFulp, I moved forward in the initiative and made the steps toward bringing it to reality. Shortly after, in the first wave of staff applications, the magical @LilSpook made herself known to me, and with her, I found the ultimate collaboration partner.

That is the story of how the Newgrounds Summer Festival came to be. But where it will go next... that is up to you.

Passing the Torch

As life moves forward and new challenges and opportunities arise, it is with confident determination that we, the heads of the Newgrounds Festivals program, pass the torch on to the next generation. Organizing events like these may be a pleasure and privilege, but it is also something that we did not intend to do forever.

Moving forward, the Festivals Discord Server will be operated by those who come after. We proudly leave you, the community, with the legacy we've built together and proudly look to the future for where it will lead.

Taking the reins in the immediate future will be @Kekiiro and @Slimygoo, who have been working as staffers and artists for the past two events as part of our team. We have the utmost faith in them, and kindly ask that you be patient as they are handed the keys to the entire operation. There will no doubt be some need for adjustment as they take over and get familiarized with what the responsibility comes with, so please be patient and kind as they step into the roles they've so graciously volunteered to fill.

With love,

@Stanpai & @LilSpook





Really enjoyed the Summer Festival I had the pleasure of being a part of. Myself coming back to Newgrounds after many years I was still in the dark as to what was going on since I was away and it was a wonderful way to get reacquainted with so many again.
Wishing the best for where the festivals go from here.

I still remember when you first created the festival server back in 2020. I was so honored to create artwork to promote the events that were made. Thanks for getting me to know more of the NG community through these events. :'} Good luck on future endeavors!

I'm happy and proud to have been a part of this since day 1. It's a really cool event we got here and I plan to do it justice. Thank you for letting me be a part of it guys!

Congratulations, you two have done an amazing job. Covid changed a lot of our lives but despite it you guys organized something special for the community. Nothing lasts forever but from the bottom of some of our hearts, thank you. Festivals general chat 2 gang 4 lyfe.

Thanks for everything you've done for the community, I'm sure Slimy and Kiiro will be great new hosts

I'm still glad to receive the honorable title of "King of Hentai" by you Stan.

@Slimygoo Wishing you good luck!

It was a pleasure having you guys lead these past 2 years! Hope everything’s been good on your end! Yugamineena!

Thanks for everything you guys! The Winter Festival was the most memorable and fun time I've had in a long time!
