Filed underSee & Do

Here’s everything you need to know about the sound and light spectacular that is White Night Ballarat 2024.

On Saturday 1 June from 6pm-midnight, the CBD’s iconic streets and buildings will be transformed by almost 40 colourful projections, illuminations, interactive works and live music.

The White Night Ballarat grid will span Sturt, Lydiard, Armstrong, Camp and Doveton streets, along with the many laneways in between.

Local, interstate and international artists, musicians and performers will weave a spell over the city in a free celebration of art, culture and creativity.

Over 20 live music acts will perform across three stages:

  • Evening Star Stage (corner of Sturt St and Armstrong St Sth)
  • Last Chance Stage (corner of Lydiard St Nth and Mair St)
  • Rosie The Caravan Stage (Doveton St Nth)

And don’t miss White Night Bites, with food trucks lining Doveton St Nth (between Sturt and Mair streets) plus special offerings at the CBD’s restaurants, bars and cafes.

Artistic director and creative producer Andrew Walsh AM of renowned major events organisation Accolade.art said the event would be a “celebration of the unexpected”.

“Ballarat is set for six hours of illuminated magic, ready to glow bright for this alluring winter experience,” Andrew 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.
