Experience the all the magic of the festive season at the Christmas in July celebration during The Bastille Day festival in The Rocks!

Even though a wintery Christmas is a Northern Hemisphere affair, those of us down under can still enjoy all the magic of a cosy festive season with the Christmas in July celebration at The Rocks in Sydney. From the 11th to the 14th of July, the laneways and streets of The Rocks will be transformed into a French-inspired winter wonderland filled with delicious food and handcrafted gifts.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year…

As you wind your way through the magic of the Christmas markets, be sure to check out all that’s on offer in the 22 authentic wooden chalets specially imported from Europe for the event. Each one will house delicious winter treats including crepes, mulled wine and classic French cuisine.

Those looking for a unique gift or Christmassy decoration won’t be disappointed either, with pop up Christmas stores selling everything you’ll need to create a magical home when December comes around. If you are able to visit in the evening, the markets really come alive after dark thanks to festive music, faux snow and fairy lights adorning the stalls.


A Family Affair

The markets are the perfect way to spend a wintery night out with all the family and entry is free, with the event open from 10am-11pm from the Thursday to the Saturday, and from 10 am to 10 pm on Sunday. If you are planning to take little ones, arrive just as the sun is setting to experience all the magic without the crowds!

We can’t wait to check out all the incredible festive themed treats and experience a traditional white Christmas right here in our own backyard!

  • What a wonderful sounding event – gorgeous!


  • Bastille Day celebrations are always entertaining.


  • Sounds amazing I will be adding it to my dairy


  • It’s a French cultural celebration of food, wine and art, held annually in Sydney’s Circular Quay and The Rocks, from Thursday, this year from 11 July 2019 – Sunday, 14 July 2019. Free entry.


  • Looks like a lot of fun and something kids would love, wish I was closer!


  • It looks simply amazing


  • That looks incredible. So wish I could attend with the family.

    • I love Christmas in July activities and markets.


  • I bet that would be lovely – crowded, though.


  • This sounds so beautiful. I’d love to visit.


  • If I lived in Sydney I would consider it. Hopefully they will keep the wooden chalets to use again even if the dismantle them, store them and re-build them again rather than them deteriorate too soon.


  • If I could go I would! But it’s too far away from me! Looks great!


  • Too far for me but I would love to go.


  • Too far for us, but I wouldn’t probably go if I were there. :-)
    Last July I ate mince pies in a coffee shop in Perth. :-)


  • Sounds like fun. Too far away though. It may as well be in Europe.


  • Looks like it’s an amazingly event. I won’t be attending. My mum and her friends have Christmas in July every year, they turn it into a fundraising event for the local children’s hospital
