Best Yulefest Events In The Blue Mountains 2020

  • Family

Celebrate the way Christmas should be celebrated: in the cold!

Winter comes alive every year when Yulefest spreads its cheer across the Blue Mountains, with many venues offering traditional Christmas style celebrations. Think warm 'Mountains' hospitality, log fires, Christmas fare, singalongs and perhaps even Santa - and yes, we're hoping for a sprinkling of snow for a true 'Winter Wonderland'.

What Is Yulefest?

Yulefest is the annual Christmas celebration that began over 20 years ago in the Blue Mountains after a bunch of Irish tourists decided July was a much better month to celebrate Christmas. Since then it has grown to become a massive seasonal event attracting visitors from all over the country.
