The 24th Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival will be held Saturday 24 June 2017
in Katoomba, Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.

The Winter Magic Festival is a free, annual community event, celebrated around the Winter solstice in Katoomba. The Winter Solstice in 2017 (Yule) falls on June 21st, 2:23pm AEST.

Winter Magic is the Blue Mountain's highest profile and most anticipated annual event. The Blue Mountains is the NSW inaugural City of the Arts and Katoomba is the heart of that city. It is the weekend when artists, musicians, dancers, drummers, choirs, stalls and community take over one of Australia's most famous towns.

During the event, the main street of Katoomba is closed to motor traffic and open to pedestrian traffic. This allows the whole town to become a performance space. The streets are lined with market stalls and everybody who attends is encouraged to dress in costume.

Unlike many Festivals run by Chambers of Commerce and Councils, this Not-For-Profit event is self supporting and is run entirely by community volunteers.
It has a strong local focus and very wide general appeal. The setting is a town sitting on a narrow ridge and bound north and south by a World Heritage listed National Park.

The festival itself is FREE, however some activities may charge a fee.


Please note that there are still a number of key 2017 committee positions to be filled. 

Positions still to be filled:

Entertainment Director

Anyone with experience with grant applications would also be highly beneficial. Help in other areas is always appreciated.

Ideally members would have experience and passion in the required areas. Committee members must be prepared to commit to responsibilities to see them through from lead up, on the day and post festival and also have an understanding of the logistical and legal requirements of Australia's largest street festival and hold the core community values.
Areas of most importance include market stall coordination and management experience, people with experience in sponsorship and grants, volunteer coordination and media.

Reply: or send a PM through the WMF facebook page if you have any questions:

Please note that ALL POSITIONS are volunteer based, and as such do not have payments, salary, wages or bonuses attached to them.

Thank You.
