Council and Windsor Business Group have secured over 50 stalls and local entertainers for this year's event, which is sure to be a fantastic community event in the lead up to Christmas, with plenty of free entertainment, markets and the lighting of the Christmas Tree by the Mayor.

More than 5000 people attended the 2018 event, and the Windsor Business Group vice president Gae Kelly expects numbers at this year's Light Up Windsor to be even greater.

"Light Up Windsor has been going for about a decade now and it's bigger and better every year, with more sponsors and stallholders and new entertainment,” Ms Kelly said.

The Windsor Business Christmas Decoration competition will also run again with the winner receiving a $500 advertising package, so it’s time for Windsor businesses to start planning Christmas displays in Windsor for their chance to win!

Hawkesbury Regional Museum will open on the night from 5pm-9pm especially for Light Up Windsor.

Infrastructure NSW and the SES will have a light display featured on the walls of the Museum, so make sure you take a stroll to the Museum to check it out.
