A winter festival is popping up for two weeks in Darling Harbour's Tumbalong Park with live music, food stalls, fireworks and pop-up igloos. Spanning eight days across a two-week period, the winter wonderland will take over the waterfront park from Thursday to Sunday on the weeks of August 11 and August 21.

There's plenty to unpack in the program, starting with the igloos. These dreamy winter retreats can be booked out by groups of up to six people for $65 an hour and includes a round of mulled wine or hot chocolate. Once you're settled inside, you and your friends or your date can order from the igloo's drinks menu. Plus, the festival is giving away a private igloo experience for one lucky group of six.

As for the live music, Tumbalong Park will be soundtracked by an eclectic lineup of bands headlined by Furnace & the Fundamentals, Hot Potato Band and Soul Movers — the new project of Lizzy Mack and ex-Wiggle Murray Cook. You can head to the Darling Harbour website to browse the live music program in full.

If Darling Harbour's wide array of restaurants and bars weren't already enough, the festival's food and drink stalls will feature appearances from the likes of Burgerhead, Firepop, Gelatissimo, Toastiesmith and Bubble Nini alongside a handful of pop-up bars serving craft beers and mulled wine.

And, each Friday and Saturday throughout the festival there will be an 8.30pm fireworks display which will light up the skies over Cockle Bay.

To explore everything that's happening at the festival, head to Darling Harbour's website.
