Christmas in Pyrmont is an annual street fair organised by Pyrmont and Ultimo residents. 2020 would have been our eighth event, and we hoped to celebrate again on Sunday 29 November. Due to COVID restrictions this is not possible. We hope to hold an event in 2021 to bring our community together and celebrate with everyone as soon as it is safe to do so.
We will support the collection of funds and school supplies by the Harris Community Centre, who deliver Christmas hampers to those in need in our community. This year there is a greater need than ever, and so we hope that everyone will give as generously as you can. More details about how to donate will be posted on this website as soon as they are available.
Christmas in Pyrmont celebrates the festive season and promotes the sense of community, while raising funds for – and awareness of – local charities. In this way it also publicises community groups and promotes local businesses.
It includes a street fair, live music and children’s activities. It is the culmination of a year of fundraising events (quiz nights, wine and cheese tasting, raffles). The organisers solicit sponsorship from local businesses, and select charities to benefit from the funds raised.
We hope that this can all happen again in 2021.
