This year’s event will be spread across five major precincts of Station Place, Watton Street, Comben Drive, Wedge St Piazza and the Wyndham Cultural Centre.

There’ll be fire shows, ice sculpting, glow-in-the-dark face painting, projections, roving circus acts, kids craft and even a light-up dance floor!
Local businesses will be open late, to create a bustling winter marketplace of warm winter dishes, hot chocolates and special winter offers.
So rug up, bring in the kids and enjoy the magic of the Winter Street Party.

Born in a Taxi present Enlighten
As night falls, a giant illuminated cube will be transformed into a space of wonder with renowned Melbourne theatre company, Born in a Taxi. Within the glowing space, three angels go about their business, sending messages between the divine and the mortal, with lighting projections and soundscape bringing this enchanting interactive work to life. Between performances, the space will be lit with projections.
Enlighten is a collaboration between award-winning physical theatre company Born in a Taxi, internationally renowned, ex U2 lighting designer Bruce Ramus and sculptor David Murphy.
Neon by Carla O’Brien
A crowd favourite last year, Melbourne-based international artist Carla O’Brien will bring a series of playful new works to Watton Street, including neon dogs, hearts, umbrellas and balloons. Vibrant and glowing bright at night, the touchable works are created with LED Neon Flex – a revolutionary new replacement for glass neon giving you an immersive 3D multi-colour experience.
