Festival of Christmas

Come and be part of the Greytown Festival of Christmas, with a month-long programme of spectacular lights, Night Markets, workshops, events, parties, food and family fun for the entire month of July each year.

Main Street will be lit up with spectacular lighting every single evening with European style Night Markets and magical festoon lighting every Friday and Saturday evenings!

Festivities are packed into the month including Christmas parties, family friendly events, cocktails, comedy, competition, and workshops. 

The festival has quickly grown into a new tradition, one that has all the hallmarks of a Northern Hemisphere winter escape, with our own kiwi flavour. It brings together families, school children, community groups and locals, and attracts people from all around New Zealand to eat, drink, shop and celebrate here in Greytown.
