Art (before) and after dark!

Get ready for the biggest glow up Moruya Showground has ever seen!

River of Art’s Luminous is set to deliver a full program of art after dark, live music on two stages and markets this Saturday from 4pm to 9pm.

The River of Art Trail is in full swing all day, so visit the program to see what is on across the Eurobodalla as you make your way to Luminous or visit our Map for a snapshot of what is happening around Moruya.

Entry via Albert Street or The Pink Gates
There are two entries, the Showground’s Main Gate at Albert Street and a smaller gate for pedestrian traffic on the town side of the Showground, so head through The Pink Gates on the corner of Vulcan and Murray Streets.
Gates open at 4pm, with faster access for those who have pre-purchased tickets and free entry for children under 16 who come along with their folks.
Bring your picnic blanket and a chair, but leave the dog and the esky at home, this is a pet-free event with some of the shire’s best food, brewers, distillers and wine makers on site.
If you’re lucky, there may be a ticket or four left for the Luminous Lounge, where you can enjoy an exclusive, elevated experience during Luminous. Mr Bold has crafted a delicious menu showcasing local produce and beverages and there’s a great package deal for groups of four available at the ticketing checkout.
