City of Whittlesea Carols 2023 | Engage City of Whittlesea


Dust off your Santa hat, warm up your caroling voice and get ready for a festive evening of fun at the City of Whittlesea Carols by Candlelight event on Friday 15 December.

The event is jam-packed with fun and exciting activities including:

  • twilight market,
  • face painting,
  • roving performances,
  • art & craft activities, and, of course,
  • lots of singing.

And guess what? Santa himself will make a special appearance!

The concert will be graced by the tunes of the Diamond Valley Brass Band as they serenade us with beloved traditional carols. Joining them will be the Community Carols Choir, composed of 60 dedicated City of Whittlesea community members.

AUSLAN interpreters will be present ensuring everyone can join in the fun!

And don't forget to do your part for the environment - you are encouraged to bring along your own reusable coffee cup, bag, water bottle, and picnic blanket. We'll supply the candles to set the festive mood!

When: Friday 15 December, 6pm-9pm

Where: Civic Centre Lawns, 25 Ferres Boulevard South Morang

We encourage residents to leave their cars at home and consider taking public transport, walking or riding to the event.
