White Night descended on Ballarat for the first time in 2017 with 40,000 people in attendance. Now this inventive celebration of arts and culture is set to descend on the gold rush city once again in 2018.

Thousands are expected to bask in hours of art installations, exhibitions, films, lighting, projection, music and performance. Ballarat will deliver a continuing adventure, transforming the city through its artists and architecture from 7pm to 2am.

This is Ballarat as you’ve never seen it before, creatively reimagined.
