The Rocks Christmas in July Village.

The Rocks Christmas in July Village

Let us transport you to France’s most famous winter villages !

When we launched our little French Christmas market in The Rocks last year, with just 12 Christmas chalets, it quickly became the talk of the town! This year, we’ve doubled the number of Christmas chalets (each imported from Europe for that extra touch of authenticity), and dramatically boosted the amount of Christmas decorations to deliver a heightened version of Christmas in France.

New for 2019, we’re also bringing a mini ice skating rink, which is exclusively for the kids. We’re also creating an enormous, edible gingerbread house that’s built to be destroyed and eaten by your little ones on Sunday, 14 July. Think of this experience as a giant, Christmassy smash cake made entirely out of gingerbread!

Something new we’ve created exclusively for the adults is Santa’s Pop Up Bar, which is a special kid-free zone, right in the heart of the Christmas Village. It’s a completely over the top Christmas themed bar, featuring Christmas cocktails, DJ sets, and even Christmas karaoke – yep, we went there! We recommend digging out your knitted Christmas sweaters and preparing yourself for some French Christmas debauchery.

Complimenting these new experiences throughout The Rocks, you’ll still find the traditional French Christmas spirit filling the air, together with the scent of freshly-baked gingerbread, hot mulled wine, chestnuts roasting on an open fire, and Christmas pine trees scattered throughout the entire Christmas Village.

Let’s not forget the atmospheric soft glow from the twinkling fairy lights hanging overhead; or the sound of live Christmas carollers singing all the Christmas hits in French and English; artificial snow falling from the sky; and maybe even a surprise visit from the big man himself – Santa Claus (Papa Noël in French).

The Rocks Christmas in July Village is also the perfect place to find unique and delightful gifts for your friends and family, including:
● Artisanal Christmas decorations
● Hand-crafted wooden toys
● Scented candles
● …and authentic French foods such as saucisson, foie gras, waffles and crepes.

We’re really excited to share this heightened Christmas Village experience with each of you this year! Joyeux Noël, Sydney! Xx
