2019 line up and program

On 22 June 2019, Katoomba Street will be closed and converted into a performance space and we will fill the surrounding open areas and laneways with music, installations and theatre. Roving performers will entertain people throughout the day and 160 stallholders, carefully curated by Blue Mountains Makers, will present locally-made wares as well as food. We can’t yet predict how many people will come to celebrate the return of Winter Magic but are planning for at least 20,000 visitors and expect many more. WE WILL NOT BE RUNNING A PARADE IN 2019. 

Instead of the parade, and for the first time, the Winter Magic Festival will fund 14 community organisations to develop and present arts and performance projects for Winter Magic. The projects include exhibitions, arts installations, dance performances and music and will highlight the creativity of children, Darug and Gundungurra people, mature adults and multicultural organisations.

We will also present a rich line up of performance and entertainers – at least 40 live gigs – and will fill the street and Katoomba’s indoor venues with sound and spectacle. After a concert on The Carrington Hotel steps, and fireworks, the entertainment will continue into the evening. So we hope you will join us!
