CBD Christmas Fair 2 weeks to go!

The CBD Christmas Fair is back, bigger and better than ever on Saturday 3rd December from 5-9pm.

In just two weeks’ time, Quay Street and the Riverfront Precinct will come alive with Christmas cheer as the community celebrates the festive season.

Bring the kids along for a fun, family event with live entertainment, a petting zoo, food, market stalls and more!

The Rockhampton Museum of Art will also be opening from 5-9pm with free exhibitions and kids activities.

Plus, the man himself Santa Claus will be making an appearance from 6:30pm!

Most importantly, don’t miss the moment that really shines, the lighting of the city’s Christmas tree.

This event supports the life saving work of RACQ CapRescue and helps to keep the people of Central Queensland safe.

This project received assistance from the Rockhampton Regional Council‘s Community Assistance Program and is also supported by Stanwell, CQ Today and Blackwoods.
