Make it Maitland this Summer with a warm evening of cool vibes during the Australia Day long weekend at Neon Nights.

During the weekend before Australia Day, The Levee will come to life with a temporary light display at select sites throughout the shared zone as well as Neon Nights on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 January 2021.

The Levee will be lit with Neon Nights, a fantastic display of glow in the dark interactive activities, light shows, projection art as well as mini golf, other games and activities and a DJ. Get your fluro shirt, sweat band and glow sticks ready for a night of cool tunes and hyper coloured lights.

Thanks to the NSW Government Festival of Place – Summer Fund, the footprint of Neon Nights has now been expanded to include Maitland Regional Art Gallery (MRAG) on 22 January between 7.00pm and 10.00pm and at Maitland Library on 22 and 23 January between 7.00pm and 10.00pm. There will be projections, live music at  MRAG and activities and plenty of nightspots to visit along the way.
