Enlighten Festival

Thank you Canberra!

Enlighten Festival 2024 has come to a close. Thank you for celebrating the amazing culture and creativity our city has to offer. Across multiple different events and offerings, you experienced illuminations, installations, music, films, entertainment, activities, delicious food and magnificent balloons at Enlighten Festival.

A huge thank you to all of our sponsors, partners, volunteers, vendors, artists and performers. We couldn’t have done this without you! Your contribution made this year’s festival one to remember.

We will be announcing the Enlighten Festival 2025 dates soon. We look forward to seeing you again in 2025!
