Christmas In Sydney Events

Celebrate Christmas in the City

It’s time to dust off your reindeer ears, put on your party shoes and kick off Christmas!
See Sydney’s city centre come alive with a street party on Saturday 23 November from 6.30pm. Enjoy roaming entertainers, rollerskating baubles, magicians, pop up stages, craft, choirs, lights, decorations and a dancefloor.
Kids entertainers will be live on the streets to party with you, including Jimmy Giggle, Justine Clarke, SplashDance and The Nannas & The Poppas.
KIIS 1065 will bring everyone’s favourite Christmas day at the beach to the heart of Sydney’s retail precinct.
See Santa in his reindeer tricycle-led sleigh. The Martin Place Christmas Tree will host a sound and light show every 15 minutes from 7.30pm. Brilliant fireworks will light up Sydney’s skyline.
With an array of shopping, there’ll be something for everyone.
The fun will not stop in the city, on Saturday 30 November the Sydney Christmas Children’s Concert is the big gig for the little ones at Prince Alfred Park. Only two minutes walk from Central, it’s not to be missed.
The Sydney Christmas spirit will extend to our villages:

You’re invited to Sydney’s newest village, Green Square Christmas Fair, see the plaza transformed into a wonderland of unique markets with Christmas lights, music and action.
Our charity partner Surf Life Saving NSW is a volunteer community, keeping millions of people safe on NSW beaches. They’ll sell fundraising merchandise and showbags at all Sydney Christmas events. Please support them where you can.
Four weeks of festivities will ring out through the city at the Martin Place Christmas tree, the choir program, the GPO Grand Dessert Bar, The Fullerton Hotel, Sydney Charity Buffet Dinner and Light-up Celebration, the Pitt Street Mall Canopy of Lights and The Lights of Christmas.
We recommend you leave the car at home and use public transport. Some roads will be closed and the city will be open for you to join the Christmas spirit. See and Transport for NSW for more on road closures and traffic changes.
