Final Stawell Christmas tree festival

A wonderland of decorated Christmas trees and other decorations, crafted by various community groups, businesses, schools and individuals, awaits visitors at Stawell’s Christmas Tree Festival.

Event spokeswoman Lois Nuske said the event, established 15 years ago, would be the last under the mantle of St Peter’s Lutheran Church Fellowship.

“It is with enormous thanks to all contributors and regular support from Stawell businesses that this became an annual event,” she said.

“It would be wonderful to see someone else take it on.

“It has for 15 years, led us into this most joyous season with all the beauty of Christmas on show.”

The festival will be at Stawell Entertainment Centre from 10am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm.

Saturday morning of the event, from 10am to 12.30pm, will again feature a kids craft corner. 

Also back by popular demand is a lucky dip from Santa’s sleigh and children’s quiz, both running over the two days. On Sunday from 1.30pm, Stawell 502 Primary School Music and Choral group, Stawell Ukulele group with guest vocalist Sarah Dunlop, interspersed by community carol singing, will provide entertainment.

Organisers have invited people to browse the display and Christmas gift stalls and vote for favourite exhibits, sit and have a ‘cuppa’ and catch up with friends. 

Entry fee is $6, which includes refreshments, with children under 15 admitted free of charge.
