The Illuminate Bathurst Winter Festival will bring warmth to our coldest time of year with the inclusion of an open-air ice rink in Kings Parade. Take a break from the ice and enjoy our regions' best food, wine and entertainment whilst watching the spectacular winter illumination show.

Illuminate Bathurst will see the Court House, Carillon, TAFE Building, Ribbon Gang Lane and Pedrottas Lane illuminated nightly from Sunday through until 12 July. The present themed illumination will capture the urban energy of Bathurst by replicating patterns sourced from the surrounding architecture, keep an eye out on the TAFE building for a visual surprise and performers from Cirkus Surreal will bring Pedrottas Lane to life. On opening night the popular silent disco will take over the lawns of the Court House. It will return to Ribbon Gang Lane after opening night.
Saturday’s street festival features more than twenty food vendors, operating from three locations, and local wineries. Festival food will range from $2 through to $15 and offers something for everyone – from pasta, soup, tacos, pizza, wedges, churros and more.
A range of family entertainment will keep everyone entertained, including the screening of Frozen, a children’s disco, night bowling, a giant slide and you can pose for a photo on the ice throne. There will be some bean bag seating provided for the movie screening, but bring a blanket to keep warm.
Illumination & Ice Rink Period: 4 July - 12 July
