The Magic of Christmas in the City

Merry Christmas Sydney!

Kick off Christmas in the City like never before!

Join us on Saturday 24 November from 6.30pm to eat, drink, shop and sing your way around a Christmas playground.

The heart of Sydney will be alive with roaming entertainers, magicians, roller-skating baubles, stage shows, choirs, lights and decorations. With an array of late night shopping options, there'll be fun for everyone.

Performers will include Jimmy Giggle, Justine Clarke, Sam Moran, SplashDance and Nay Nay. We'll have loads of activities like gingerbread icing, decoration making and letter writing to Santa.

KIIS 1065 Thunderbirds invite you to eat, play and share with games and treats for everyone. Santa will arrive in a brand new sleigh – stay close to say hello as he rides his way through the event.

The Martin Place Christmas Tree will light up at 8.30pm as fireworks illuminate Sydney's spectacular skyline.

Our Sydney Christmas Children's Concert is set to rock Sydney on Saturday 1 December from 6.30pm at Prince Alfred Park, Surry Hills. It's just a two minute walk from Central station, so lock in the date, and don't forget your picnic rug. Make sure you're there early to secure the best spot.

Whether you're a kid, or just young-at-heart, you'll enjoy our line-up of top children's entertainers like Jimmy Giggle, Justine Clarke, Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom, The Listies and SplashDance. We'll also have kid's activities, table tennis, giant Jenga, showbags and a visit from Santa. Fireworks will light up the sky as the concert comes to a close.

You're invited to celebrate four weeks of Sydney Christmas in Martin Place. The GPO Grand Dessert Bar will be back for the fifth year in a row, so you can treat yourself to a tempting range of gelato, house-made sweets, cakes, coffee, cold beverages and savoury options.

With a perfect view of the Christmas tree from our casual seating, it's the ideal place to get comfy and enjoy the choirs performing at the base of the tree each night.

Christmas shopping in the city will be full of festive cheer. Street choirs in Pitt Street Mall on Thursday nights and weekends provide the perfect accompaniment for evening shoppers. And you'll find everything on your Christmas shopping list in Sydney's unique shops, boutiques, arcades and department stores.

Pitt Street Mall will light up each night with a Canopy of Light – thousands of twinkling white lights overhead.

The fun doesn't stop in the city. For the first time ever on Sunday 2 December a special corner of Sydney will come alive with Christmas in Green Square. Enjoy kids activities, stage performances by some of Sydney's best, food trucks and more.

Family friendly village Christmas concerts in Alexandria on Friday 7 December, Rushcutters Bay on Saturday 8 December and Rosebery on Sunday 9 December will ensure Sydney's Christmas cheer is extended to all. Santa will make a special appearance at every concert.

Our official charity partner, Variety – The Children's Charity, works tirelessly to help children and families through difficult times. Through the season, please show them support where you can.

 

You're invited to enjoy all the bustle and excitement that Sydney Christmas brings.
