Here we are only weeks out from Christmas wondering where the year went! Another fast paced 12 months has flown by and whether we’re ready or not, it’s almost time to start enjoying a plethora of 2018 Christmas events, winding down the year and looking forward to the next.
The silly season is one of our favourite times of year. Our promotional staff are dusting off the elf suits and gearing up to help create some festive cheer and Christmas magic all around the nation. Once again we have comprised our must-do list of amazing festive 2018 Christmas Events in our capitals.

Brisvegas will be buzzing over the first three weekends of December. The world food markets bring the city’s first festival dedicated to all things Christmassy to Brisbane Powerhouse, New Farm. Friends, family and fur-babies will gather to celebrate the season at a community twilight picnic and market. The concept is focused on supporting local small business.

Of course a Merry ol’ Bar on the performance lawns will be serving up festive cocktails, summer spritzers, craft beers and local wines.
