Experience the magic of a European Christmas
Christmas is coming to Parkes Place Lawns in Canberra, with the Christmas in July Festival! If you have ever wanted to go to Europe at Christmas and wander along the market stalls as the snow is falling, then you can experience it all - right here in Canberra! There will be an authentic "French Christmas market" this July with 22 chalets (wood huts) imported from Europe, melted cheese stations, French crepes, snow falling, magical lights, carols, nutcrackers, French wines and a Mulled Wine Garden!

Mark it in your calendar for 30th June - 3rd July, 2022! You are not going to want to miss this!

There will be over 60 exhibitors with a wide range of delicious foods to try, products to buy and mulled wines to drink. There will also be a Raclette Melted Cheese Igloo Experience in a private igloo, where you can fit 6 to 8 people and enjoy melted raclette cheese with your own firepit. The cost is $89 per person and you receive a private igloo (with tables and chairs) for 1.5 hours, 1.8kg of raclette cheese and 1kg of charcuterie, potatoes and pickles. There will also be mulled wine in an urn and 1 large skewer of marshmallows per person to roast on the fire pit. Sounds good, doesn't it? Get all your details here!

If that's not "cool" enough, there is a firepit experience and a VIP mulled wine garden experience - so get involved and warm up on a cold night in Canberra!
