Winter Magic Festival

Held from June 21 to 23, the Winter Magic Festival transforms Katoomba with local artists, musicians, dancers, drummers, choirs, and food stalls.

The festival invites the entire community to enjoy the enchanting winter atmosphere of the Blue Mountains with fun for all ages.

Families will love the audio-visual spectacles, live art, dance workshops, children’s entertainment, spoken word, comedy, markets, and local food and brews.

With 130 performers across 13 stages—nine free and four ticketed—the festival takes over Katoomba’s venues and streets, filled with market stalls and costumed revelers.
