Kiama Winter Street Festival – 13 & 14 July

Building on past successes with an exciting twist, Destination Kiama is set to host the Kiama Winter Street Festival during the July school holidays. This vibrant event will transform downtown Kiama into a winter wonderland on Saturday, July 13, and Sunday, July 14, 2024.

Terralong Street will close to vehicles, becoming a pedestrian paradise, filled with dining options, live music, interactive workshops, dancing, and street entertainment. As night falls, magical light installations will illuminate the sky, creating a festive atmosphere.

Community spirit and local support

Councillor Matt Brown, Chair of Destination Kiama, shared his enthusiasm: “We are excited to create a fun, engaging, and vibrant festival that captures our famous community spirit while supporting local businesses. This event offers expanded dining and shopping opportunities during the typically quieter winter months.”

“We invite everyone to immerse themselves in the festivities, enjoy the diverse dining options, and revel in the entertainment that extends into the night (well, 9pm is late for us!).”

Cameron Thomas, owner of Central Perk Cafe, expressed his support: “This is a fantastic initiative, and we welcome all community activations that bring everyone together to enjoy our beautiful town, especially during the winter months.”

Entertainment extravaganza

Entertainment giants Junkyard Beats will energise the crowd with their dynamic drumming and dancing, creating an electric atmosphere. Local talent, including dance troupes, community groups, solo artists, and bands such as Bronte Alva, Rolling Holy, Prodikal-1, and The Groove, will showcase their skills.

The Laughter House will present top national talent on the ‘Kiama Little Big Stage,’ while DJs will keep the party going with lively music. Highlights include a laser show by Flying Pictures, a glow zone, and light installations featuring local art by R & R Production Services.

Family fun and interactive installations

Kids and families can enjoy illuminated giant puppets by Curious Legends, a giant snow globe, and roving performances by CirqueUm Navigate, including a magic and fire show. 

Local flavours and extended trading hours

Local licensed venues are encouraged to stock Destination Kiama’s branded Pale Ale, Kiama Winter Brew, crafted by local favourite Stoic Brewing. Retailers, cafés, and restaurants will extend their hours, offering an eclectic range of fare to tantalize taste buds and join in the winter festivities.
