The most wonderful time of the year – Christmas in Yarra

We hope you’ll join us for our Carols by Candlelight spectacular at Citizens Park on Thursday 7 December, from 6pm to 9pm. This free event will feature performances by school, community and national choir groups. There will also be a very special appearance from Santa, along with food and drink stalls. Candles and song books will be available for purchase, so warm up your vocal cords and bring a picnic blanket.

Get into the Christmas spirit with a visit to one of Yarra’s famous retail and dining precincts. From fashion and furniture to food and flowers, Yarra’s local shops will have everything you need in the lead-up to the big day. Festive wreaths will be installed throughout Yarra's retail precincts, on a mix of parking signs, replica lamps and tree guards. The festive sculptures from last year will also be making an appearance.
