The annual Christmas In Pyrmont street fair has become a local feature and much anticipated event. It is organised by Christmas In Pyrmont Inc, a not-for-profit collective of volunteers from around Pyrmont and Ultimo and it is their pinnacle fundraising event. John Street is closed off to accommodate stalls, entertainment, amusements, food and drink outlets, kids activities and, most importantly, the arrival of Santa Claus.
Throughout the year, Christmas In Pyrmont Inc runs quiz nights, wine and cheese tasting, raffles and other events to raise money and awareness for charities. They invite local businesses to provide sponsorship and encourage local residents to come and participate. It’s very unifying and helps promote local business as well as benefiting various causes.
This year’s street fair is a fundraiser for Barnados, Ultimo Public School, Harris Community Centre so come along, get into the spirit early and help support this worthy event.
