Christmas will come early when the Central Coast Christmas Fair springs up at the beautiful Mt Penang Gardens at Kariong on Sunday (Dec 4).
In its ninth year, the fair will be bigger than ever, with more than 150 stalls fanning out across the picturesque location, turning the lush gardens into a Christmas market wonderland from 9am to 2pm.
It’s set to be an even more jolly affair for adults with the first Eastcoast Beverages Cocktail Bar plus the return of Six String Brewery Pop Up Bar and Wollombi Wine Zone.
There will also be loads of food stalls, fresh seasonal produce areas and festive puddings, to whet your appetite for the season ahead.
There’s the stylish Lucy Upton offering rustic string and wrapping bling, Adri’s Christmas-themed gingerbread, heady candles from A Vintage Ambience and adorable handmade treasures for the littlies from the likes of Mop and Dolly, Mum & Mia and Milly Molly Mandy.
Live music will be courtesy of Star 104.5 FM with Fletcher Pilon and Grizzlee Train headlining.
Don’t be stingy with the buskers in the Musicians Making A Difference Street Lounge – funds raised are going to the Lounge Room at Gosford.
Family fun includes arcade games, magicians, paper aeroplane races, a rides zone and the merry man himself – Santa.
Did we mention it’s all free?
Coastal Chic Tip: It’s the Coast’s largest outdoor Christmas shopping experience so follow the organiser’s parking advice and be prepared to be patient
