Get ready to celebrate this December with the Celebrate Orange360 Festival!

From the 9th-12th December, join us in the heart of Orange for the Celebrate Orange360 Festival! Celebrating the reopening of our region and championing local talent and producers that make our region so special, Celebrate Orange360 is a 4-day festival jam packed with events for the whole family to enjoy.

 The Orange Wine Festival Night Market and Wine Show Tasting are the perfect events to sample our local cool-climate wines, while a Spiegeltent in Robertson Park hosts a program of ticketed events including live musical performances, comedy acts, death defying stunts and so much more. But wait there’s more, McNamara Street will come to life with live acts and a pop-up bar, on Friday 10th December.

Featured Spiegeltent events include The Pitts Family Circus, bringing family acrobatics, juggling, hand balancing and jokes. The Space Cowboy will have you on the edge of your seat with sword swallowing, knife throwing, escapology, chainsaw juggling, whip cracking, mind reading, mentalism and spoon bending. The after dark skew of the KISS BANG Kabaret brings comedy, circus, variety, and cabaret like you have never seen before!

“With a selection of wine and food available from out the front of Speigeltent, we think this is a fun way to spend Saturday afternoon with the family and do a little bit of Christmas shopping in Summer Street and the surrounding centres. For those looking for local fare not share with family and friends, there will be plenty on offer in our Christmas in the Villages and on this weekend there is late night shopping in Blayney and Millthorpe”, commented Caddie Marshall, Orange360 General Manager.

The Christmas highlight will of course be the fra-lah-lahing of the Orange City Council Christmas Carols on Saturday 11th December in Orange’s North Court to bring some holiday cheer to town.  “Carols by Candlelight is one of the most popular events on Council’s calendar and I’m glad we are able to put them on this year, after the pandemic forced their cancellation last year. Our council staff have also been busy putting Christmas decorations up around the CBD, with the hugely popular Robertson Park bauble also set to make a return. It really adds to the Christmas cheer and gives people something to smile about after a very tough couple of years.” commented Orange Mayor, Reg Kidd.

“I encourage everyone to come into the city centre and join in the celebrations, spend time in the city centre supporting our local businesses and boosting our economy this Christmas. I will be there, will you?”

Awake on Sunday and be welcomed back to Robertson Park for Sunday Sparkling Brunch and Christmas Artisan Markets, an ideal spot to sample and purchase local produce – once again, just in time for Christmas!

“Orange is open for business! We’ve missed our visitors and we’re thrilled to welcome them back to celebrate the reopening of our region in such a big way. Celebrate Orange360 will mark the start of the festive season and be a showcase of local talent and producers. We’re inviting our locals and visitors alike to head to Roberston Park and enjoy a weekend of fun and Christmas Cheers, we’ve included events for all ages to enjoy so that there really is something for everyone to celebrate!” commented Caddie Marshall, Orange360 General Manager.
