Get into the spirit of the festive season in the picturesque grounds of Vaucluse House, and delight in the Christmas celebrations with live entertainment, cooking demonstrations, talks, and food and gift stalls.

Held on Sunday 12 December 2021 from 2 pm to 5 pm, this exciting family-friendly event will showcase a hand-picked selection of Sydney's finest artisan producers, makers and small-scale retailers.

Stallholder highlights include Country Women's Association of NSW, Beeswax Wraps Australia, Dan's Pasta, Gelato Man, Katie Swift Cordials, Nonna's Grocer, Outer Island, Our Festive Puds and Ziggy's Wildfoods. This is a great opportunity to find unique food-related gifts or specialty items for your Christmas table!

You will also be able to join Sydney Living Museums curator and colonial gastronomer Dr Jacqui Newling and award-winning wild-food forager Gabriel Gutnik from Ziggy's Wildfoods for a series of festive food demonstrations in the Vaucluse House courtyard.

Learn expert tips and tricks as Jacqui prepares a Christmas pudding and fruit mince in the traditional manner, using Mrs Beeton's recipes from 1861.

Get inspired with Gabriel as he shares his recipe for a delicious wild mulled gin that is the perfect addition to any Christmas table.
