The Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival is Australia's largest community street festival. If you haven't previously attended please be aware that the crowds are large. It is held within a town that involves multiple street closures and parking is extremely limited.
In an effort to minimise contamination of the 3 waste streams we will have 9 Staffed Rubbish Rooms throughout the festival. Each will contain 6 bins or 2 sets of:
GREEN: Organic waste - food scraps, biodegradable packaging, paper, serviettes
YELLOW: Recycling - cans, bottles, recyclable plastics, glass
RED: General waste - everything else
The Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival is a FREE, annual community event. Unlike many festivals run by Chambers of Commerce and Councils, this event is self supporting and run solely by community volunteers.
Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival strongly advises families and visitors frequenting this year's festival to utilise rail transport where possible: www.wintermagic.com.au/how-to-get-here
Official Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival Keep Cups are for sale for $15 from CafeXpresso and the Blue Mountains CoOp now and also the WMF Information Stand on the day of the festival located at the top of Katoomba St near the train station.
A little peace in the lane way with Blue Mountains Food Co-op at this year's Blue Mountains Winter Magic Festival:
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! The Dutchess of Nostralia and her posse of royal rovers will be at the festival collecting your gold coin (preferably note!) offerings.
