We'll be back in 2022!

Council made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Monash Carols by Candlelight at Jells Park. 

Instead, various locations in Monash were activated with the 12 Days of Christmas and Monash Summer Series programs. 

Save the date Sunday 4 December 2022! 

12 Days of Christmas - Wrap Up

Highlights included the vibrant roving performers, neon installations and Santa Zoom Sessions.  

Four lucky winners received a memorable visit from Santa who arrived at each house in a Monash SES vehicle, complete with lights and sirens! 

There was a wonderful sense of community and plenty of Christmas spirit. 

Monash Summer Series - Wrap Up

Highlights included the vibrant roving performers and great up and coming, local talent. 

Activities such as fairy tent, slime workshop, henna art, and rangoli were enjoyed by adults and children alike. 

The events were such a lovely way for the community to come together and enjoy music and entertainment in some of our community's open spaces.

Christmas 2020

2020 certainly was a year like no other and on 20 December instead of gathering in Jells Park our community came together to view a specially filmed Carols by Candlelight Online hosted by MC Pete Smith.

It featured an amazing line-up of artists, including Belinda Parsons, Amore Duet, Richard Thomas, Annie Jones, the Oakleigh Primary School Choir and Bethany Fisher.

They were joined by the Monash Carols by Candlelight Band, created by musical director Bob Moody, and Santa also made an appearance.
