It’s one of the precinct’s most beloved events and it’s just around the corner! Christmas In Pyrmont, is a proud, successful community event run by a team of dedicated elves who work tirelessly throughout the year to raise funds. It’s a big and bubbly outdoor festival with all day entertainment, stalls, food, and fun. This year’s highlights include indigenous performers, school and local choirs, cheerleaders and dancers, Taikoz Japanese drumming, ukele players and much more. Santa, as always, will make his spectacular entrance on a fire engine, and there’ll be a raffle with fantastic prizes. Lots of food and drink stalls to help keep your sustenance up, and gift stalls so you can in early with your Christmas shopping.
Money raised will go to four special charities:
Ultimo Public School
Mustard Seed Church and Uniting Harris Centre
All of whom do magnificent work in a variety of capacities.
The entire event is run by volunteers, and they need your help!
