The Village Gets Festive!

Christmas in the Village

Mt Eden Village gets into the Christmas festivities on Saturday 2nd December with Christmas in the Village. This Christmas celebration features the ever popular family event - the annual Christmas Tree Decorating Fiesta.

The Tree Decorating Fiesta brings all ages together to get into the spirit of Christmas. Dozens of kid-size Christmas trees are waiting for creative young elves to decorate them in colour and style. Vibrant and colourful materials will be provided for kids and parents to create their very own decorations - let your imagination run wild! The good fairy and naughty fairy will pop by with prizes for the best decorated trees. The Christmas joy keeps giving, as the proceeds from the Tree Decorating Fiesta will be returned back into the local community through supporting Mt Eden community projects.

Christmas cheer comes to Christmas in the Village with trees, crafts, and families gathering for a fun and festive day out.

When: Saturday 2nd December (12pm – 1pm)
Where: Village Green, Essex Road Reserve, Mt Eden
