Christmas is a time when we are more likely to give to people in need and spend more time together as friends and neighbours. We believe that looking out for people who are battling in some way, and building social connections are two important values of the Bracken Ridge community.  The Bracken Ridge Xmas Festival  is created each year to further promote and facilitate these two themes in Bracken Ridge each Christmas time. Our hope is that we will be able to foster generosity towards other people and build social connections between people who live in the suburb, even in the same street, but don’t know each other.

Who runs the festival?

The festival is run collaboratively by local community groups, churches, businesses and the local council representatives. Bracken Ridge Baptist Church facilitate the organisation but it is truly a collaborative event. Please see our list of sponsors and collaborators.
