What is IlluminARTe?

Attracting more than 20,000 people in its first year 2015, 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.

Market stalls will sell locally made arts and craft, designer fashion and accessories, packaged gourmet foods, and other unusual, innovative and unique items while the take-away food vendors focus on traditional street food freshly prepared on site, particularly those with international influence of “sizzle, aroma and theatre”.

 A Family Fun Day will be held 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 and Gum Trees will be glowing with coloured lights with activities continuing on after sunset.

 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, a top four finalist on Channel 9’s hit show “The Voice”.

 As night falls, children and adults proudly march in the Lantern Parade with paper lanterns they have made in workshops and master classes captivating the audience with their creations. The finale is a fireworks spectacular over the historic town capping off a night of colour, light and creativity.
