Your Guide to Christmas on the Yorke Peninsula and Copper Coast

Port Broughton Christmas Festival – a mecca of holiday cheer

A lineup of exciting events for the whole family is in store for December at the popular and picturesque Port Broughton.

A Christmas Street Party will take over the main street on December 9, featuring food trucks, an array of stalls, and a stack of entertainment for the kids. The highlight at 6pm is the Christmas Pageant, parading along West Tce and Bay St, showcasing local floats. Santa’s Cave at the Town Hall will be open at 7:30pm where families can meet Santa and snap a festive photo. As night falls, gather at the Port Broughton jetty at 9 pm for the Annual Christmas tree lighting, sing carols, and watch the town Christmas tree light up the sky.

This year the festival also introduces new attractions, including a Christmas Cookie Decorating stall, Bubble Tea from Adelaide Chinatown’s Chatime, and the return of favorites like face painting by Made by Monica and creations of Bali by Rae.
