Canley Heights Children's Christmas Party

Fairfield City Council’s festive calendar is filled with events and activities to ensure that everyone has a very Merry Christmas.

Fairfield City Mayor Frank Carbone said Christmas is the perfect time of year to come together with friends, family and the community to celebrate.

“One thing that is very clear at this time of year is that Fairfield City residents are passionate about Christmas,” Mayor Carbone said.

“Christmas events are always popular and many homes across the City are decked out in wonderful lights and decorations.

“Council is proud to be a part of this festive spirit, with events for all the family.

“We are also holding a fun Christmas lights competition for residents, and we will be getting in on the action with our ever-popular Christmas lights at roundabouts to bring joy to locals and commuters traveling in the evening.”
