Light Up Melbourne Festival

Community Event

6 Apr 2019 to 9 Apr 2019

The Light Up Festival aims to bring a world-class lantern showcase to Melbourne on 6 to 9 April at Birrarung Marr. With the banks of the Yarra River as the backdrop, this Festival will host a number of different large-scale lanterns, including the centrepiece, the Eternal Dragon, symbolising good fortune, strength and nobility.

Be immersed in the Festival’s night market area and enjoy a variety of delectable cuisines – including a ‘Little Sichuan’ section specialising in tantalising Sichuanese treats, arts and cultural activities, entertainment and sideshow alley games.

This is a free event and one not to be missed. Join in as Melbourne lights up this year.
