Over the years the Ballarat Neighbourhood Centre has organised with local community members several events in partnership with the City of Ballarat and the Department of Health and Human Services, including:

Families, friends and neighbours came together to celebrate with Christmas Carols at Pearces Park, Barkly Street, Mt Pleasant on Sunday 10 December, 2017. Many contributed to the success of the event including the lively 'The Little Brass Band'; the beautiful singing of the 'Ballarat House of Music Christmas Carolers'; our wonderful MC - Jenny Dyer from Mt Pleasant Primary School; Central Highlands Water who donated water bottles; Bean Me Up Coffee; Santa and his helpers from Ballarat Police and Mayor, Cr Samantha McIntosh who extended season's greeting from the City of Ballarat.
