                                                                         Attracting more than 25,000 people, illuminARTe Wollondilly is the largest event on Wollondilly’s calendar.

IlluminARTe 2018 will be held on Saturday 5th May 2018

With something for all ages, spectators can expect a remarkable cultural experience combined with breathtaking performing arts, local music, market stalls and food vendors. As night falls, the free family event encourages visitors, locals, friends and families to stroll through the picturesque town of Picton taking in the enchanted ambiance as an amazing range of local artworks are projected onto landmark buildings to illuminate the historic town.

In the days leading up to the event, and the day of the event, Wollondilly Arts Group together with local artists hold a 3 day Art Exhibition in the Picton Shire Hall which showcases the rich talent of the area.

 As the town is glowing in illuminations, children and adults proudly march in the Lantern Parade with paper lanterns they have made in workshops 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. 

Wollondilly Shire Council and its innovative team behind Macarthur's most extraordinary illuminating creation, encourages spectators to immerse themselves in what has now become one of the most exciting annual experiences on Wollondilly's cultural calendar, designed to promote public awareness and appreciation of the Southern Regions emerging artists.
