Held annually in May, ILLUMIN8 is a two-day event that celebrates peace and harmony inspired by Buddha’s life.

ILLUMIN8 is a family friendly event celebrating peace and harmony through different light installations, multicultural performances, food and market stalls, family entertainment and a spectacular animated light and fireworks show on The Great Stupa.

With different activities across the weekend, immerse yourself in all the experiences the festival has to offer.
