Illuminate Wollondilly festival postponed

Wollondilly's popular arts and cultural festival, Illuminate Wollondilly has been postponed due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

With the council's original plans to hold the festival in September now off the agenda, the event has been rescheduled to November 12-14, 2021.

Wollondilly mayor Robert Khan said the event, which is now in its sixth year, was known for attracting thousands of visitors to Picton throughout the day and night.

"We are working hard to make this a Covid safe event to help us celebrate with the community and visitors after lockdown ends," he said.

"We hope Illuminate Wollondilly will provide a boost for our local businesses, artists and performers who have been doing it tough over the last two years.

"I would like to thank all our partner sponsors for their patience as we reorganise the program, and the staff from Council who are working hard to bring this event together despite the ongoing challenges.

"There is still some uncertainty over Covid-related restrictions on public gatherings in the months ahead, so we will be monitoring the Public Health Orders and adjusting the plans as we need to."

Illuminate is the only event of its kind in Wollondilly. It features spectacular building illuminations, the Waste to Art exhibition, a long table dinner, a Jazz festival and headline music acts.
