Each year, Castlemaine Rotary hosts Carols in the Park for the community.

It's a fun event for the whole family, showcasing a fantastic lineup of musicians and performers including Thompsons Foundry BandCastlemaine Pride Choir and special guests celebrating the festive season in beautiful Victory Park.

BYO picnic, rug, chairs and singing voices.

A classic BBQ, provided by Castlemaine Lions Club, will whet your appetite from 6.00pm.

And, of course, there will be a guest appearance from a very special someone!  

In the event of inclement weather, Carols will still go on, but will be shifted to Castlemaine Town Hall.

Community Grant distribution

It's not all about Christmas celebration as Castlemaine Rotary and Mt Alexander Community Enterprise will also announce grants to community organisations. Last year, Castlemaine Rotary contributed more than $56,000 to community organisations.
