After the overwhelming success of the Queanbeyan Christmas in July markets in 2016, Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council are back and ready to unwrap the merriest event in the region.

Just like any good Christmas gathering there will be lots of goodies to find, a bounty of food that will make any Santa’s belly wobble and lots of FREE entertainment and activities.

The market will host scrumptious Christmas inspired food, gourmet treats, handmade Christmas gifts plus loads more. You can even support local charities whilst enjoying mulled wine and having you’re newly purchased goodies wrapped. As always there will be a range of regionally-based makers and producers offering their handmade delights. Our furry members of the community are also not forgotten with the popular Santa Pet Photos, back with some very cute dachshunds looking to win some hearts.

This year we have worked hard to ensure everyone’s comfort and more space has been allowed in the pavilions, vendors are encouraged to move outside where possible, pram parking has been introduced to reduce congestion, disability access is being reviewed, additional signage including directional signs for crowd control is planned, increased traffic control and parking.  We are even looking into dog minding services so both two legged and four legged members of our community can enjoy their day.
