We are rebuilding a new festival that will be better than ever and need your support.


Winter Magic is returning on 22 June 2019 with a new program that showcases the creative talents of the Greater Blue Mountains. Instead of running a parade, organisers have decided to focus on community arts and street-based entertainment to ensure our community and our visitors have a magical day. Sponsorship is critical to our success. We know that Winter Magic is part of Katoomba's brand – the colour and spectacle is part of the unique character of our town, and that brings visitors and shoppers. It also brings AirBNB guests, tenants, and house hunters – people who want to take a stake in the area.

Our 2019 Winter Magic 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 110 stallholders 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). 

In 2019, 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 musical performance and entertainers, filling the street and Katoomba’s indoor venues with sound and spectacle. After a concert on The Carrington Hotel steps and a dazzling fireworks display, the entertainment will continue into the evening.

  • Present 200+ local performers and entertainers throughout the day and night
  • Offer prizes to artists and fashion stars
  • Pay gratuities to our festival coordinator and stalls manager to deliver a quality festival.
