Event Information

White Night is the city as you’ve never seen it before. Alight, alive and shining more brightly under the cover of dark.

See art take over. The buildings, the streets, the parks and the laneways. Every one a stage, a canvas, a reimagining.

From big moments of magic to small moments of mystery, it’s all yours to experience your way.

Hurry now. Bring your curiosity, your child-like wonder, your sense of adventure.

White Night Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo and Geelong.
