Friday, 10 December 2021 - 5:00pm to 7:30pm

Join us at James Meehan Reserve for our annual Christmas By The Beach to enjoy all your favourite traditional carols and a children's Christmas show with fun entertainment for the whole family.

Our entertainment line-up is headlined by some of your favourites from PAW Patrol to keep the kids entertained. Join Ryder, Chase and Marshall as they answer Mayor Goodway’s call for help to save the “Adventure Bay Talent Show”. Kids, get ready for action as Ryder and the Pups take you through all the moves for the Pup, Pup Boogie and make this the best rescue mission ever!

Bring your own picnic, grab takeaway from one of Dee Why’s many restaurants or choose something delicious from a range of food vendors operating onsite from 4pm-7.30pm.

The gates open at 4pm with the show starting at 5pm. In line with the current NSW Government Health Orders, capacity is limited, so come early to secure your spot. Once we reach capacity we cannot admit any more patrons. A COVID Safety Plan will be in place.
