Port Macquarie Christmas Fair

Celebrate the Holidays at Port Macquarie’s Colourful Christmas Fair!

Hey there, fellow parents in Port Macquarie! I’ve got some exciting news for you. The annual Christmas Fair is back, and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever before. On December 8, the Town Square will be transformed into a winter wonderland, complete with a brand-new Christmas tree, an enchanting ice skating rink, and a visit from none other than Santa Claus himself!

A Word from Lucilla Marshall

Lucilla Marshall, our Group Manager for Liveable Communities, expressed her enthusiasm for this year’s event:

“Following world-wide attention in 2022, there’s no doubt that anticipation for this year’s Christmas Fair will be high. But while it might not live up to the international accolades of last year’s infamous Christmas Fair countdown … we’re sure it’ll still get all the attention it deserves with free ice skating for all ages, a Christmas Laser Light Show and the lighting of our brand-new Christmas Tree. There’ll also be artisan stalls from local traders, food trucks, roaming performers on stilts and even a guest appearance from Mr and Mrs Claus. It’s an event not to be missed!”

Fun for the Whole Family

Here’s what you can expect at this year’s Christmas Fair:

  • Date and Time: Friday 8th December, from 5 pm to 9 pm
  • New Christmas Tree: Witness the magical lighting of the new 9.5m high artificial tree at 8:15 pm. This tree is built to last, with a 10-year life span, making it a centrepiece for many more Christmases to come.
  • Ice Skating Rink: Experience the joy of gliding on ice at the Town Green Ice Rink. It might not be real ice, but it promises real fun for kids of all ages!
  • Artisan Stalls: Discover unique gifts and goodies from local traders. Support your community and find that perfect present for your loved ones.
  • Food Trucks: Treat your taste buds to delicious offerings from a variety of food trucks. There’s something for every palate!
