Frost and Fire in Forbes

Frost and Fire in Forbes

Are you ready to embark on a winter adventure like never before? As we eagerly anticipate the fifth annual Frost and Fire event in Forbes, Central West New South Wales, the excitement is building, and the chill is in the air.

Cosy up by toasty fire buckets, indulge in hearty treats from food trucks, and savour boutique brews – all while being serenaded by an internationally acclaimed artist and a stellar line-up of Australian musicians on the main stage.

Internationally recognised performer Vera Blue will grace the stage, infusing the night with her chart-topping magic.

Australian music marvels include:

  • country sensation Raechel Whitchurch
  • Cler, Jo and Em, the dynamic trio of the Central West
  • Parkes local artist Gracey Denham-Jones
  • Forbes local artist Cameron Sharp.

But that’s not all – Forbes’s promise to entertain extends beyond the older crowd. Children will find themselves enchanted by endless entertainment options, including bubble magic, fire performers, and the graceful Ice Queen on stilts. As the night builds toward its peak, a spectacular display of fireworks will illuminate the sky, introducing the main headliner of the night.

Frost and Fire invites you to unwind over the weekend in Forbes, offering unique experiences that celebrate the winter solstice. If you’re looking to engage in a full weekend of winter fun, join the town on the eve of Frost and Fire at ChillFest (Friday 21 June). Glide and twirl on the synthetic ice-skating rink beneath the stars, indulge in delightful treats from food stalls, and join the community for a cosy family movie night in the Youth and Community Centre.

Between events, indulge in Forbes’s local boutique shopping, or cruise the Sculpture Down the Lachlan Trail for epic photos of the Inland Sculptures by the Sea.

Mark your calendar for Saturday 22 June, set your alarms, and get ready for a captivating blend of starry skies, lively performances, and a profound sense of community.
