Excitement is increasing with the announcement of some big name music acts that will be gracing the stage this year. illuminARTe Wollondilly will be held on 29 April from 12noon to 9pm.

Special guests at the Family Fun Day in the Picton RSL Memorial Park will be Sam Moran, former yellow Wiggle and Nick Jr.’s ‘Play along with Sam’. The Children’s Entertainment Group, “The Beanies” will add to the jammed packed entertainment day and night!

With less than 4 weeks to go, Wollondilly is filled with anticipation for the illuminARTe Festival. Attracting more than 20,000 people in its first year in 2015, illuminARTe 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”.
