Yulefest‘Christmas in July’
• June, July, August
• The Blue Mountains Yulefest tradition is said to have started over 20 years ago when a group of Irish guest were staying at the Mountain Heritage Hotel in Katoomba. They remarked at the irony, as snow was falling outside, of having winter weather in July. They asked if it was possible for the hotel to arrange Christmas style food and festivities for that evening, which the hotel obliged. Thus started the first ‘Christmas in July’ festivities.

Today, the Yulefest Festivities are celebrated throughout the Blue Mountains, with many venues offering Christmas revelries, traditional Xmas food, log fires to keep out the cold winter winds, singalongs, a santa or two, as well as a number of specific events such as ‘The Winter Ball’.
