Carols By The Beach in Merewether

December 23, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The music-filled, family-friendly holiday event of the year is here again! Join the Merewether and Newcastle community in gathering beachside at Empire Park for Carols by the Beach, an evening of vibrant summer festivities. There’ll be live carols to sing along to, fun activities for kids, a dazzling fireworks display and a visit from Santa Claus himself.

Bring a rug, grab some food and glow sticks at the event & enjoy a couple of hours of lively Christmas fun with your neighbours.

This year the sales of glow sticks and drinks will be supporting NOVA, a local organisation that is making a difference in Newcastle for women and children who experience domestic violence – a charity which Carols by the Beach is proud to support!

The venue also has amenities, security and first aid onsite to make sure the evening is a blast for everyone in attendance. Join us for a fun, unforgettable community event!
