Like a phoenix from the ashes, the Winter Solstice Bonfire will rise again this year.

Collingwood Children’s Farm’s famous annual bonfire was cancelled (twice!) due to Covid-19 in 2020 but it’s back on Saturday 11th September this year to thrill and delight thousands of families.

There is something hypnotic about watching flames leaping into the night sky from a massive bonfire. When live music, fire lanterns and storytelling are added to the mix, it’s truly an evening to remember.

Delicious street food is available on the night from Dos Diablos, Inkredible Calamari, Wrap Rollit, Twista Bros, Beatbox Kitchen, Dandee Donuts, Mona Coffee and friends of the Farm – the Country Women’s Association.

Drinks are provided by Bodriggy, Mountain Goat Brewery and Noisy Ritual Winery.

This event sells out fast and tickets are available online only via our Eventbrite page.

Prices are:

Families $45/concession $22 (2 adults & 2 children)
