The globally recognised late-night spectacle of culture, art and music, White Night, is set to bring the city streets alive across Geelong this weekend.
White Night Geelong set to bring every corner of the city’s past, present and future to life.
This much-loved event returns to beguile audiences in Geelong for the first time since 2018.
Set to take over the streets with immersive projections, interactive installations, live music and street food, the event will take place Saturday 8 October 7pm–1am.
This year, the program is bigger, bolder, and bursting with creativity and colour in what will be a transformative celebration of the regional Victorian city.
Private and public spaces from Gheringhap Street to Johnstone Park will be invigorated with a surge of free and family-friendly programming reflecting this year’s theme, ‘Everything on the land is reflected in the sky’.
The night will start in Steampacket Gardens with a ceremony by theTraditional Owners of the country on which the event takes place providing a Welcome onto Country.
The one-night-only, all-ages event will reflect Geelong’s distinct passions and characteristics through inclusive celebrations of art, culture and community, for tens of thousands of locals and visitors alike.
