Christmas in Williamstown

This annual event has been running for more than 10 years and is an important part of the Williamstown community, bringing together local businesses, residents and visitors to celebrate the festive season.

Come and see Santa riding around in a vintage fire truck, as well as opportunities to meet him at his Grotto in the Rotunda at Commonwealth Reserve! There will even be some gifts* for children and big kids (adults!) under Santa's tree!

There will also be craft stations and face painting for kids, live entertainment and music, and special promotions from local traders! Local businesses will be open until 7pm to help you get started, or finish up your Christmas shopping. Once done shopping, find our gold coin donation gift wrapping stations to tick another job off the list!

*1x children's gift per child; 1x small gift bag per family while supplies last - thanks to generous donations from local businesses!
