Winter Street Party is back for 2022 at the Werribee City Centre on Friday, June 24, from 6pm to 9pm.

Hosted by Wyndham council, Mayor Peter Maynard said the free event would provide a magical experience for people attending.

“After a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19, we’re thrilled to see the Winter Street Party return to the city centre and to be able to celebrate together as a community once more,” he said.

“The street will be alive with fire shows, light installations, ice sculpting, circus performances, music and warming winter fare from local businesses.”

“This mid-winter event brings thousands of people into our city centre and into local businesses to enjoy so many great dining options, special experiences and late-night trading,” Cr Maynard said.

The event would feature three entertainment precincts, including Station Place, Watton Street and the West end.

“There’ll be bright neon sculptures to explore, fire shows, ice sculpting and the interactive, Electric Meadow – a playful light and sound installation that responds to touch,” Cr Marcel Mahfoud said.

“Roving performers including a magical Dream Bear and LED robots will delight the kids along with glow-in-the-dark face painting, gaming fun in the Street Surfer Bus and a wintery wonderland of craft activities.

“It’s also the perfect opportunity to explore Werribee’s buzzing dining scene, with

dine-in and grab and go dining options,” Cr Mahfoud said.
