The Winter Magic Festival is the Blue Mountain's highest profile and most anticipated annual event. It is a weekend when artists, musicians, dancers, drummers, choirs, stalls and the 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. Come and enjoy the highlight of the 2018 Winter Magic Festival ~ the Grand Parade! Experience the atmosphere of this great Winter spectacle, starting at 11:00am, traveling along Katoomba Street and Main Street.

Grab a bite to eat and take time out at one of the many festival food stalls and delight in the tongue-teasing taste sensations from around the globe. Experience the Magic of Winter with the amazing fireworks display from the rooftop of the Carrington Hotel at 6:30pm.

The Winter Magic Festival is a Not-For-Profit event that is self supporting and is run entirely by community volunteers

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