Be Part of Something Spectacular 

Back and bigger than ever in May 2022, illuminate in its sixth year!  The festival is set to delight once again, with exciting activities for the whole family and even more awe-inspiring lighting projections. Crowd favourites will return again in 2022 including the LED dancers, Gorgeous stilt walking street performers, fire breather, family carnival and more!

Brand new for 2022, the illuminate Festival will now incorporate activities on Friday & Sunday as well as the main festival on Saturday. A Long Table Dinner, illuminated lantern, sculpture and lighting display in Picton Botanic Gardens and a Jazz & Swing Afternoon will all add to an already amazing festival!

 The Main Festival will once again see the town’s glowing buildings be the centrepiece of the festival with amazing artworks projected onto the Menangle street buildings. The event will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display over our historic town.

Wollondilly Shire Council welcomes you to be a part of this exciting festival which will attract thousands of visitors, locals, friends and families to the picturesque township on Picton on 20, 21 and 22 May 2022.

The Team

Wollondilly Shire Council, Southern Tablelands Arts and its innovative team behind Macarthurs most extraordinary illuminative creation, encourages spectators to immerse themselves in what has now become one of the most exciting annual experiences on the Wollondilly cultural calendar, designed to promote public awareness and appreciation of the regions established and emerging artists.

The lead digital Artist – Khaled Sabsabi is a full-time professional artist who specialises in mixed media and site-specific installation presentations. His process and practice involves working across art mediums, geographical borders and cultures to create immersive and engaging art experiences.  He see’s art as an effective tool to communicate with people, through a familiar language. Sabsabi makes work that questions; rationales and complexities of nationhood, identity and change. His practice speaks to audiences in ways that enlighten our understanding of universal dynamics which is more complex and ultimately more unknowable than our own selves.

Along with Khaled is his team of digital professionals; Jerome Pearce, Andy Ko and David Kirkpatrick, they are set to raise the bar yet again for 2022.



Artists for the 2022 festival will be revealed early in 2022!
