The 12 Days of Christmas Carnival is underway

Heart of the City is celebrating Christmas this year with a series of lunchtime pop-up carnivals with live performance, DJs and food trucks taking place in public squares and shared spaces throughout the city. Acts performing as part of the event include King Kapisi & Che Fu, 50/50 Dance Crew, Sal Valentine, Nick D and many others. We’re announcing each day’s line-up 48 hours in advance, so stay posted to or the Heart of the City facebook page for updates.
