Christmas Festival

Each year, the City of Melbourne hosts a free month-long festival in the Melbourne CBD known as the Christmas Festival which brings a little bit of magic to Melbourne for the Christmas season.

There are many events and activities planned during the festival at many locations around Melbourne; including Federation Square, the Melbourne Town Hall and the Docklands.

Christmas Festival Melbourne 2022 Dates, Locations & Santa Schedule

This family-friendly festival provides a perfect setting for kids to enjoy the holidays with Christmas trees, lights and Santa providing daily entertainment.

The centrepiece of Melbourne’s Christmas Festival is located at Fed Square, which transforms into Christmas Square – a festive wonderland. Marvel at the glittering 16-metre LED Christmas tree in the centre, topped by a twinkling star. Inside Santa’s Big Workshop the man in red is making toys and presents. Ask a friendly elf for a socially-distanced snap with Santa.

If kids miss out on meeting Santa in person, they can post a letter to Santa at a special post box located at the Australia Post GPO on Elizabeth Street, which will send their letter straight to the North Pole!

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to the Bourke Street Mall to see the iconic Myer windows.

There is so much going on, so for a full list of all of the different Christmas events running in the city, please visit the official event website.
