Christmas in Clunes

Christmas 2018 is fast approaching!

Join us to celebrate Christmas in style.

Keep up with the most recent announcements on our facebook page.


There is so much happening – you can bring your kids AND your pets for Christmas photos, Live Entertainment, Circus, the Big Bush Dance, and Christmas Carols Night of course. Come along and admire the fabulous decorations as all of Fraser Street lights up. Tour the whole town’s Christmas Lights and vote for your favourite house. Most events are free, or as low cost as we can make them.

And don’t forget the Street Parade! Everyone is welcome – build and bring a float, any theme, or come to march in costume.

Individual entry is free (but you still need to register) and community groups are charged a nominal fee (see on the form). Click here to download a Float Registration form.

About Christmas in Clunes

Started in 2016, the very first Christmas in Clunes was put together by a Working Party made up of traders and residents; and the support of local businesses as sponsors, or participants.  Clunes Neighbourhood House auspiced the activities, and the festival (as it turned into) received additional support from the Council, and also the Bendigo Bank.  It took us over 300 hours to develop the displays and put up the decorations; and more than 3 days to take them down again.  Countless people (too many to name even though we’d love to thank everyone individually!) helped decorate the town, or entertain people on each of the Friday evenings throughout December.
