Hey There

Welcome to Bundanoon Winterfest - a week long festival of events and activities all over Bundanoon, in the beautiful Southern Highlands. There's something for everyone, so make sure you join in the fun this winter!

About Bundanoon Winterfest

Bundanoon Winterfest has been running for over 10 years. It began when a group of Bundanoon locals wanted to create something to bring the community together in the middle of winter - July in the Highlands is dark and cold. Bundanoon Winterfest brings light and a sense of community to that midwinter darkness. It has become an enormously popular mid-winter celebration, with a program of events designed to appeal to all. 

The Winterfest opening night party is one of the best-loved of Bundanoon’s many community events. Attracting about 3,500 locals and their guests, there is live music, food and drink stalls from local community organisations and businesses, and plenty of fun activities for adult and kids of all ages to enjoy.

Our workshop program runs for a week and aims to bring locals and visitors together to learn and experience new things and to feel the magic of winter in the Highlands, while taking part in a wide range of fun events.

Winterfest also provides an opportunity for local businesses to raise their profile within the local community and beyond, through sponsorship, running workshops or taking part in the opening night celebrations, with over 50 small businesses and community groups hosting or running events.

Bundanoon Winterfest is a volunteer run, not for profit community event. As part of the Bundanoon Community Association, Winterfest is self-funding and relies mostly on sponsorship from local businesses, grants and donations. Please get in touch if your business would like to be part of this fabulous event!
