Calling for Stall Holders for illuminARTe 2016

Posted on: 08.02.2016

Wollondilly Shire Council is now seeking expressions of interest from potential stall holders who would like to be part of illuminARTe Wollondilly on Saturday, 7 May 2016. 

Attracting more than 20,000 people, IlluminARTe Wollondilly is the largest event on Wollondilly’s calendar. The festival encourages visitors, locals, friends and families to stroll through the picturesque town of Picton taking in the enchanted ambience as an amazing range of local artworks are projected onto landmark buildings to illuminate the historic town.

Activities kick off at midday with market stalls selling locally made arts and craft, designer fashion and accessories, packaged gourmet foods, and other unusual, innovative and unique items. The take-away food vendors focus on traditional street food freshly prepared on site, particularly those with international influence of “sizzle, aroma and theatre”.   Live entertainment will add to the atmosphere from midday and continues through the night with performances from Local bands, soloists, groups and buskers; as well as a special guest performance from Liam Maihi from Channel 9’s hit show “The Voice”. 

The Picton Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Family Fun Day in the Picton RSL Park which will consist of a community BBQ, jumping castle and other children's attractions. As night falls, the ANZAC memorial gum trees will be glowing with coloured lights with the activities continuing on after sunset.

During the evening, children and adults proudly march in the Lantern Parade with paper lanterns they have made. The finale is a fireworks spectacular over the town capping off a night of colour, light and creativity.

If you would like to be part of this exciting and unique opportunity; Wollondilly Shire Council encourages you to complete the Stall Holder application form. Round 1 applications close Monday 29 February.
