In awesome news for our regional towns, Geelong and Bendigo will be hosting the enormously popular White Night (festival) in 2018.
This latest major event coup will see Geelong city streets, parklands, laneways, public spaces and cultural institutions transformed with spectacular illuminated art – with a theme that pays tribute to the region’s maritime and indigenous heritage.
The event was announced by Minister for Tourism and Major Events John Eren with our CEO, Kelvin Spiller and the event director David Atkins.
Along with Geelong, Bendigo will also have their own White Nights in 2018, following the success of the event in Melbourne and Ballarat.
WWhite Night Bendigo will take place on Saturday, 1 September 2018, before heading to Geelong on Saturday, 13 October 2018. White Night is also returning to Ballarat for a second time on Saturday, 17 March 2018.
