Enlighten Illuminations at Enlighten Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

28 Feb 2020 to 9 Mar 2020

Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Canberra’s beloved Enlighten Illuminations, presented by Singapore Airlines, will again see the Parliamentary Triangle come to life after dark. Be immersed in stunning architectural projections on Canberra’s most iconic buildings including Australian Parliament House, the National Portrait Gallery, the National Library of Australia, the Museum of Australian Democracy, the National Gallery of Australia, Questacon and more. The festival precinct will come to life with roving artists, live bands and interactive installations including the Neon Night Garden by Carla O’Brien and Monsters Love You! (but might eat you..) by GAS. Explore the national attractions after dark with a range of exclusive free and ticketed events including a one night only six-course degustation at Australian Parliament House, late night access to Game Masters at National Film and Sound Archive and National Zoo and Aquarium’s Zoo Fest plus more.

Enlighten Alley provides a huge range of local food options immersed in the illuminations precinct along with a range of family activities. Or head to the Canberra Night Noodle Markets, offering a vibrant Asian street food festival with a range of insta-worthy dishes from local and national favourites including Superbao, Hoy Pinoy, Gelato Messina and more.
