HOTEL GRAND CHANCELLOR LUXURIOUS XMAS IN JULY PARTY | 9 July

You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why. Because the Hotel Grand Chancellor is ringing the festive season early with its joyous Christmas in July Party. In previous years the event has been an absolute hit, celebrating the mid-year holiday spirit.

The Christmas in July event will see you enjoy a 3-course meal and a 4-hour beverage package accompanied by a performance by Jungle Jooce to let you dance the night away.

RYDGES CHRISTMAS IN JULY PARTY | 9 July, 23 July

There ain’t no party like a Christmas in July party at Rydges which is probably why they sell out. Every. Single. Year.

Take in the amazing views on the Adelaide Hills and parklands while dancing the night away with your nearest and dearest to some classic hits and of course some Christmas jingles that you know and love. And it’s warm inside, too!

SOUTH AUSSIE’S COSI JULY GALA BALL | 15 July

Radio presenter, journalist and legend Andrew ‘Cosi’ Costello is trying to raise $34,000 to save SA’s iconic giant Santa in an event that will include a three course dinner showcasing SA produce, hours worth of SA wine and beers by Stonehaven, and a surprise visit from Santa. Although it’s not a surprise now… damn!

Cosi has bought the biggest Santa in the Southern Hemisphere for just $2, but it needs lots of TLC and that’s why he’s out to raise the money, to save Santa from the scrap heap.

German Weihnachtsmarkt | 16 July
