Sunday, 29 July 2018 | 10:00 AM to 04:00 PM

Christmas in July returns on 29 July 2018 at the Queanbeyan Showground

Can you hear those sleigh bells jingling? Yes, Queanbeyan Christmas in July is back with all the delights of a mid-year Christmas gathering. Enjoy over 200 unique market stalls, belly filling foods and a whole lot of community love. All welcome to a winter dream in Queanbeyan Showground 29 July 2018 from 10-4pm.

The day includes Christmas-inspired food, gourmet treats, beer and wine, handmade Christmas gifts, an artificial snow area, Daschund races and fashion show, an art exhibition, a play area for your elves, carriage rides, outdoor obstacle course, bubble soccer, Santa pet photos and a giving tree.

There is even a special appearance from Santa from the South Pole. The South Pole is where Santa hangs out mid-year and with the help of the Queanbeyan Veterans Motorcycle Club and the Queanbeyan Men’s Shed. He will be making a special appearance sitting on a chair made of motorcycle parts, yep its Game of Thrones meets Christmas.

This year the QPRC Events team worked hard to be even MORE merry.  So while Mariah Carey might not wish for snow…. we do and this year a winter wonderland will be created with artificial snow and even more Christmas merriment. From Christmas cookies to mulled wine to dogs dressed as presents, the day includes all things merry and bright.

Your junior elves will be well looked after thanks to the Queanbeyan Show Society who will be bringing a taste of the show plus a chance to make your own Santa sack. 

Right now we’re making a list and checking it twice so be sure to let us know you’re coming by pre registering and you can also go into the draw to win a premium European-designed Christmas tree valued at $1000 thanks to Christmas Emporium.

Back by popular demand is the ‘early Christmas presence pass’ which is specially designed for those in our community who have sensory concerns, issues with large crowds or mobility concerns. The pass allows holders to enjoy Christmas in July – Winter Dream one hour early. Consider it a present of presence that’s a must to be present for….or more simply, a delightful gift meaning you can be among the first to be there.

There is free onsite parking for your sleigh or sledge. However, if the Christmas spirit takes you please throw a few ‘goldies’ into the bucket on entry. Your generous donations will gifted to Legacy, Queanbeyan War Widows, The Queanbeyan Scouts, and the Queanbeyan Girl Guides.
