Illuminate Adelaide | Winter Light Festival | 1-31 Jul 2022

Illuminate Adelaide Family Friendly Program Highlights

This July, illuminate Adelaide returns to Adelaide’s city streets, laneways, and buildings with light, art installations, immersive technology, music, and performance. This is the perfect winter event for families with free and ticketed events for all ages.

Last year’s inaugural Illuminate Adelaide dazzled South Australians with impressive, interactive light displays and trails like City Lights, Light Cycles at Adelaide Botanic Garden and Light Creatures at the Adelaide Zoo which are returning in 2022.

This year, some exciting new events have been added to the program including Ouchhh Studio, Wisdom of AI Light, an extraordinary AI driven immersive experience.

Base Camp is sure to be a favourite with families – a pop-up winter village with ice skating, food and drink.

New Light 2022 is a free event showcasing experimental and diverse moving image works by contemporary First Nations artists.
