Frost & Fire

Sat 22 June at 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Free – $30

Embark on a warming winter adventure at Forbes’ annual Frost and Fire event, nestled in the heart of Central West NSW!  As we commemorate our 5th year, things are heating up! 

Cosy up by toasty fire buckets, indulge in hearty treats from our food trucks, and savour boutique brews while being serenaded by internationally recognised Australian music acts on the main stage. 

But the excitement doesn’t stop there! Immerse yourself in live entertainment, including Wiradjuri cultural performances and the stunning spectacle of our Frost and Fire effigy bonfires. 

Our promise to entertain extends beyond the older crowd – children will find endless entertainment options, including bubble magic, fire performers and the enchanting Ice Queen on stilts. As the night builds toward its peak, a spectacular display of fireworks will light up the sky, introducing the main headliner of the night. 

Enjoy our event worry-free with complimentary shuttle buses running throughout the night, along with convenient $10 parking and disabled access for everyone to be part of the magic.
