Take a step back in time to the roaring '20s and the era of the Great Gatsby to celebrate Christmas in July with a wonderful dinner and show that will entertain your socks off. The River Canyon Restaurant will pull out all the stops for a fun night out in Parramatta that will satisfy your senses and seduce your soul.

Great Gatsby Show, Christmas in July, River Canyon restaurant

The Great Gatsby Show comes alive with jazz music and the beauty and class of amazing dancers in period-style attire. Charleston dances will be performed with Flappers girls, who represented rebellion in the '20s by wearing short skirts and having bobbing hair (considered scandalous at the time).

Get in the mood and dress in vintage Gatsby costume for this special evening that includes a gourmet buffet feast with

A selection of bread
Salads, from seafood & prawn to pesto pasta and creamy mustard & potato
Hot Section of rosemary marinated roast beef & mushrooms, chicken breast fillets in mustard tarragon cream, BBQ lamb mince kebabs and Kafta skewers, Spanish meatballs with chorizo, Italian lasagna Bolognese, baked fish with lemon butter sauce, creamy butter chicken, Italian sausage & grilled peppers, buffalo chicken wings, penne Arrabiata, vegetable & egg fried rice, and a whole lot more with vegetarian options as well
Delicious desserts, from chocolate mousse to caramel custard, assorted cakes and fresh fruit
