Light Up Windsor

It will start snowing in Windsor on Saturday, December 18th in the lead-up to the much-anticipated Light Up Windsor Festival.
Elves will be roaming Windsor Mall and George St in snow and shine and there will be free face painting as the town gets festive.

This year’s Light Up Windsor Festival includes a light projection display on the Deerubbin Centre and the Old Hawkesbury Hospital every night from December 18th through to Christmas Eve, 8pm to 10pm.

The main event will be on Wednesday, December 22nd with a giant Christmas market, lights, snow and so much more from 5pm to 9pm including illuminated hula hoopers and stilt walking elves.

Local musicians, dance schools will be showcasing their talents and there will be an elf drumming and hula stage show from 6.40pm on the main stage.

With more than 50 stalls offering Christmas decorations, homewares, pet gifts, handmade jewellery and more, plus many of the Windsor Mall shops open for trading, it will be the perfect opportunity for a spot of last-minute Christmas shopping. Local cafes and restaurants will also be open, alongside carnival food vendors.

Santa and his special elf helper will be joining in the fun. At the Deerubbin Centre visitors can participate in a fun, interactive colour-bynumbers style street art and The Hawkesbury Central Library and Hawkesbury Regional Gallery will be open until 8pm on Wednesday 22.

Special Reindeer passports for children are available at Visitor Information Centre at Clarendon right now and include a bonus stamp.

On Wednesday, December 22, children can visit all the locations to collect stamps. Passports should be delivered to Council’s tent on the night to collect a special prize.

All completed passports at the street fair, including getting the bonus stamp, go into a draw to win a $500 Hawkesbury family pack, including:

Passports can also be collected on the night from Council’s tent.
