The Whittlesea Christmas Festival will again combine multiple events in a celebration of local community. Based at the Whittlesea Agricultural Society (Whittlesea Showgrounds) in conjunction with a twilight market and the annual Christmas Tree extravaganza, the highlight of the night will be the outdoor Christmas Carols. 

This is a true community partnership with Whittlesea Agricultural Society (WAS) who are managing the Christmas Tree Extravaganza with more than 50 trees, over 60 market stalls and food trucks, as well as an animal nursery. This year the number of food vans has increased, and family friendly cheap food options will be provided.

This performing arts festival for people of all ages will feature music, kids activities, a classic car display, drama and of course Santa Claus.

This is a non-alcoholic event. BYO Picnic, chairs & blanket!

This event is proudly supported by the City of Whittlesea through our Community Grants Program.
