It’s time to welcome a new addition to Brisbane’s Christmas calendar.

The inaugural Christmas night market — presented by Peter Hackworth, the woman behind the popular Riverside at the Gardens market — will light up the City Botanic Gardens with glistening fairy lights.

An event for the whole family, the market will feature live entertainment, including local band The Fergies, Christmas-themed stilt walkers, fire twirlers and more.

There’ll also be Carols by candlelight, as well as plenty of delicious street food.

Shoppers looking for potential Christmas gifts will be spoiled for choice, with vendors offering handmade jewellery, arts and crafts, leather work, wood work, candles, skin care products and a range of fashions.

The Christmas night market will be held at City Botanic Gardens on Thursday 22 December from 4pm to 10pm.
