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.
Christmas Festival Melbourne 2023 Dates, Locations & Santa Schedule
From Santa’s workshop to the massive illuminated tree, there’s plenty to love at Christmas Square. Wander through endless glittering decorations day and night.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without a trip to Bourke Street Mall to see the iconic Myer windows.
Venture out under the starry lights of one of Melbourne’s favourite laneways for a special night market series. Bring the family or meet up with friends as you meander the open-air laneway. Tick off all your gift shopping and pick up locally-made Christmas trinkets. Don’t skip the street food stalls and summer bevs from the pop-up bar.
