Flagship Events

Each year, Council organises the delivery of four flagship events for Singleton.


Australia Day celebrates what’s special about our beautiful country. What better way to celebrate being an Australian than kicking back and enjoying a summer sunset with family and friends away from the heat of the day, with kid’s activities, and amazing Hunter Valley food and wine.

Face painting, jumping castles, a balloonist and craft stations will keep the kids entertained all night long, while Mum and Dad can relax with friends with a glass of wine, listen to live music and enjoy delicious food.

Twilight will also see the return of the classic car showcase, and the army’s tug-of-war competition which is always an amazing spectacle. 

The fun continues on Australia Day with a traditional BBQ breakfast, following by the Australia Day Citizen Award ceremony on the Civic Centre stage.

FIRELIGHT - 11 May 2019

In Autumn, the days get shorter and cooler but one sure-fire way to warm up is to head to Singleton Firelight.

Returning bigger and better in 2019, Singleton Firelight will feature pyrotechnics, flame jets, fire drums, transforming Singleton Civic Precinct into a blistering festival of music, food and fire.

Also on the Civic green you will find a gathering space dedicated to the region’s food and wine. This will be the epicentre of the event where you will encounter drool-worthy eats from food trucks, and wine and craft beer from local wineries and breweries. All that’s left is to take a seat at one of our communal tables to enjoy the twinkle of lights overhead and the trendy beats of local bands.

BLAST - 17 November 2019

Grab the family for this celebration of fun and active living!

Kicking off at 9am on 10 November 2019, Civic Park will become an adventure playground for the whole family. 

Blast will feature loads of outdoor action across seven zones. Fuel up on snacks from food trucks, check out the strongman competition, obstacle course, and heaps of kids activities including rock climbing, bubble soccer, LaserTag, camel rides, jumping castles and much more.

Blast is a family-friendly, inclusive event for all ages - best of all, most activities are FREE!


All the fun and festivities of the Singleton community Christmas party will hit the main street on Friday, November 24 with a packed program of entertainment and activities sure to have even the most ardent Christmas grinch celebrating the most wonderful time of the year.

John Street will become Santa Claus Lane from 5pm as street performers, market stalls and children’s entertainment take over the pavement, complete with a main stage and performances by Singleton Town Band, Theatrical Society and roving carols by Singleton Choir.

And of course, there’ll be a visit by the jolly man himself culminating with fireworks on the riverbank at Rose Point Park at 8.30pm.
