Illuminate tickets on sale today

I’m pleased to announce that tickets to our City’s family-friendly New Year’s Eve celebration – Illuminate – go on sale at 10am today.

We are making the tickets available exclusively to Fairfield City residents for two weeks before releasing the rest to the general public on 20 November.

This year marks an exciting new chapter for the ever-popular event, with the move to our custom-built festival arena at Fairfield Showground in the heart of our City. This will enable thousands more to enjoy the celebrations. In previous years, tickets would sell out in just a few hours so we are expecting this year’s Illuminate to be the biggest and best yet.

To celebrate our supersized Illuminate, this year’s event will have a superhero theme. Iron Man, Spider-Man, Thor and Captain America will thrill families with meet and greets throughout the afternoon, while Batman and Joker will don jetpacks and do battle with a show complete with LED lights and flames!

There will also be free amusement rides and carnival games, music, dance, food and drinks, virtual reality experiences, camel rides, face painting, airbrush tattoos and more. We will also broadcast the Sydney City 9pm fireworks on the big screen before our own spectacular fireworks finale at 9.30pm.

I can’t wait to see all the smiling faces at Fairfield Showground at what we expect will be the largest crowd ever at Illuminate. Bring a picnic rug, chairs and an esky and get ready to enjoy the show!
