City of Stonnington is thrilled to announce an exciting new program that will transform Prahran Square and Malvern East’s Central Park into vibrant destinations for everyone wanting to celebrate Christmas experiences together this year.

Stonnington has carefully cultivated a number of experiences people can attend across both Prahran Square and Central Park for a unique Christmas experience this year. From people with pets to people with young families to those who are simply young at heart, we are thrilled to announce the following line up of things to do over our 12 days of Christmas. 

Over 12 nights, Prahran Square will host the ‘Sights and Sounds of Christmas’ – a vibrant installation where lights, colours and sounds will illuminate the iconic Prahran Square and stunning Christmas tree. Music features heavily throughout the program with fun and family friendly opportunities to listen to live jazz and Christmas favourites at our Christmas Bandwagon, see a pop up artist play the Christmas piano or take part in a fun silent disco of Christmas beats.

For the pet lovers out there, there’s also the chance to get a photo with Santa Paws this year.

For something more hands on try one of the Christmas Craft Workshops with the Prahran Square library or take the kids and enjoy Storytime in the Square where we’ll be sharing Christmas stories for everyone to enjoy.

Central Park will feature an instaworthy series of neon characters on display for 10 days of ‘Summer Lights and Christmas Brights’. Venture through the gardens with your family and friends to discover these fun and playful installations, illuminating nightly.  

So come have a unique experience and celebrate a joyous occasion together at Prahran Square from Monday 13 December and Central Gardens Malvern from Wednesday 15 December.

All experiences will be delivered safely within the Victorian Government’s reopening roadmap.

City of Stonnington Mayor, Cr Kate Hely:

'We are really excited that we are able to celebrate Christmas with the Stonnington community. This year we will be celebrating in the 12 days leading up to Christmas with new activations at Prahran Square and Central Park. I'm looking forward to the stunning display of lights and sounds filling the community during this special time of the year. It will be great to see people coming together safely after a tough two years.'
