Carols By Candlelight

Traralgon Carols by Candlelight started over 40 years ago with a small group of local people gathering for a sing-along in the park near the current Arts Centre and Council Service Centre (where the old library stood in Grey Street).

Over the years, numbers slowly swelled until we found the Arts Centre was incapable of holding the number of people who wanted to get in. With a maximum of 500 inside, we were eventually reduced to allowing people in only when others left ... not ideal.

The idea of a Sound Shell in Victory Park was born so that Carols could remain outside with numbers unrestricted.

Eventually the Sound Shell was built and Carols is now a major outdoor event in Latrobe City.

2014 Carols was a great success with about 5,000 enjoying a great night of entertainment in our wonderful, outdoor arena.

We are looking forward to seeing YOU at Victory Park in 2015.

A night such as this does not happen without outside support and we would like to acknowledge our major sponsors: AGL Loy Yang, Latrobe City and McDonalds, Traralgon.

We would also like to acknowledge the support of our Master of Ceremonies, AJ,  the Traralgon City Band, the Lions Club Junior Choir, the Combined Churches Choir, Santa, Prime Possum and various other artists.
