Cowra Christmas Street Festival

The Cowra Christmas Street Festival is an opportunity to celebrate community spirit leading into the festive season and share a great night out with friends and family.

The main street of Cowra is closed to traffic and transformed into a market city with up to 100 stalls selling everything from local products, handicrafts, clothing and much more. Browse the variety of stalls to the tunes of Christmas Carols before grabbing yourself a bite to eat from a dedicated ‘Eat Street’.

There is a Christmas Wonderland for the Children providing free activities and photo opportunities with Santa Claus and plenty of entertainment including singing and dance performances as well as an appearance by Santa Claus himself.
