to Winter Magic 2021

Winter Magic is an annual celebration of the Winter Solstice that is created and delivered
by the people of Katoomba and the greater Blue Mountains.

Event Highlights


A community event that celebrates the diversity and excellence of artworks produced by the local artists of the Blue Mountains.

Dress Up

One of the endearing features of Winter Magic is participants’ dress up and costume. It isn’t unusual to see vikings, fur-suited animals, fairies, warlocks and wizards, and favorite movie characters. The wackier the costume, the better.


Local businesses in the main street of Katoomba participate in hosting the local area’s amazing musicians. Settle in with a mulled wine or hot chocolate and experience the sound of Blue Mountains Magic.

Street Food

You won’t go hungry at Winter Magic! The street is brimming with multicultural foods and refreshments.

Dance Performers

Folk, flamenco, burlesque, bellydancing and cabaret –  true showcase of Blue Mountains’ talent.

Artisan Markets

Celebrating local business owners and artists, we fill the main street with market stalls offering crafts, gifts, clothing, toys, food, candy, ceramics, and art.

Street Theatre

Running across numerous stages across Katoomba CBD, you can experience comedy, street music, and street theatre.
