These Winter school holidays, Rozelle will come alive with the Christmas (in July) spirit. The village will be decked out with twinkling lights, shining stars, joyful carols and ... beanies? Yes, indeed, beanies. This wonderful winter staple is at the heart of this month long Christmas in July celebration, as the whole community are invited to don their favourite knit cap and head into Rozelle to participate in the 'Beanie Street Party'.

With your head warm and your heart filled with Christmas cheer, there will be plenty of Winter fun to be had in Rozelle - there will be delightful festive treats on offer, such as egg nog, hot chocolate, mulled-wine and plum pudding and a number of local businesses will be hosting a range of special events, including live music performances, beanbag film screenings, exhibitions and a fundraising sausage sizzle. Plus there is the 'Find the Rosella' competition, in which ten Rosellas have been hidden on the premises of 10 stores in Rozelle and all are welcome to try and find them; there's thousands of dollars in special prizes up for grabs! The Rozelle Fest Facebook page is providing daily information, photos and clues.
