Bright lights, big flowerbeds, tasty food and entertainment galore. We’ve got your NightFest 2018 itinerary covered.

Wednesday 26 September

Kick NightFest off and relive your fave 80’s flicks as you sit among the illuminated flowerbeds at our very own outdoor cinema. Catch Doc and Marty McFly in Back to the Future (PG) at 6.45pm followed by the paranormal crime-stopping trio in Ghostbusters (PG) at 8.45pm.

Thursday 27 – Friday 28 September

It’s all about the music! Warm up your vocal chords with Canberra’s Lucy Sugerman and the dynamic Mojo Juju before Thelma Plum hits the stage. While Friday night will see the award-winning Kate Miller-Heidke, Caiti Baker, Iain Gately and Bowie Unzipped take Stage 88.

Saturday 29 September

Join us at Party NightFest for an evening of dance with 80’s synth-pop masters Cell Block 69. Dress in your double denim splendour and throw some shapes to iconic tunes.

Sunday 30 September

Laugh the night away with stand-up faves at our MA15+ Comedy Nightfest. Belly laugh along with Matt Okine, Chris Ryan, Arj Barker, Fiona O’Loughlin, The Stevenson Experience and Akmal Saleh.

Top it all off by visiting our many food stalls, tasting some locally brewed gin and being mesmerised by the sparkling displays! Plan your trip and visit Floriade.
