Dazzling projections and laser beams will light up Ballarat at White Night 2024 this winter.

The after-dark celebration will transform the city’s streets, laneways and historic buildings on Saturday 1 June from 6pm–midnight.

A free and inclusive event, White Night Ballarat will feature:

  • almost 40 light projections
  • over 100 artists and performers
  • three concert stages
  • White Night Bites, with special offerings at the city’s restaurants, bars and cafes plus food trucks lining Doveton St Nth (between Sturt and Mair streets)
  • family-friendly entertainment and activities

As part of the all-night music program, JazzParty, Tek Tek Ensemble, The ReChords, Troy Firebrace, Confetti Western, The Counterfeit and Ballarat artists James Ellis and the Jealous Guys, Sami and Lashes will entertain the masses from two stages in Sturt and Mair streets.

The amazing art line-up will include:

“Ballarat is set for six hours of illuminated magic, ready to glow bright for this alluring winter experience,” White Night artistic director and creative producer Andrew Walsh AM said.

Across Victoria’s Midwest, we acknowledge that we travel across the ancient landscapes of many First Peoples communities.

These lands have been nurtured and cared for over tens of thousands of years and we respect the work of Traditional Custodians for their ongoing care and protection.

We recognise the past injustices against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in this country. As our knowledge grows, we hope that we can learn from their resilience and creativity that has guided them for over 60,000 years.

As we invite people to visit and explore Victoria’s Midwest, we ask that alongside us, you also grow to respect the stories, living culture and connection to Country of the Ancestors and Elders of our First Peoples.
