Browns Bay holds several free community events and ‘shop local’ promotions each year to involve and thank the  community for their loyalty to our local businesses, as well as and attracting visitors from further afield. Our signature event is the annual Browns Bay Christmas Parade which attracts up to 10,000 visitors. We also love having outdoor movies on the beach reserve in a perfect summertime setting, and Father’s Day Boys Toys (first Sunday in September) is becoming a very popular recurring family event.

November 18 @ 4:30 pm 9:00 pm UTC+12

Bring the kids down to Phoenix Plaza to celebrate the arrival of the festive season, and witness the plaza and giant Christmas tree being lit up. There will be kids’ entertainers, live music, festive spot prizes and face painting from 4.30pm to 6.30pm. Arts and craft market stalls will line the boardwalk from 4pm – 8pm to help inspire you for your Christmas gift shopping. And the big fella will make an early Christmas appearance for the little ones at 6.30pm.

Stick around for the draw at 7.30pm because someone’s lucky finger will win the right to switch the switch that will light up the plaza and giant tree lights at 8pm.

The big kids can grab a bean bag, have a boogie, and enjoy the live band. Why not make a booking at one of our many fabulous restaurants for family dinner, or grab a takeaway while you’re in town.

And there’s more… The Stoned Cow Cafe will be hosting a festive light and art exhibition called ‘Connections’ to celebrate being able to come together with family, friends and loved ones for Christmas this year after a tough couple of years.

The plaza will be full of action!
