About Light Up St Pat's
Light Up St Pat’s will shine a brilliant array of colour and creativity upon St Patrick’s Cathedral, Parramatta during the City of Parramatta’s Winterlight Festival. This initiative of the Cathedral Parish of St Patrick will further connect the Cathedral with the growing and diverse Parramatta community.
Dazzling images will be projected onto the Cathedral, similar to Vivid Sydney and the Lights of Christmas at St Mary’s Cathedral.
Light Up St Pat’s projections will run throughout the Winterlight Festival from 5 July until 21 July 2019, held at the adjacent Prince Alfred Park. Projections are shown from 6pm on weeknights and 7pm on weekends.
Light Up St Pat’s will provide entertainment and hospitality for the whole family, including an organ recital and concert, artwork from local schools, BBQ and drinks, coffee cart, food van and live entertainers.
Australia's Next Great City
Parramatta is going to be Australia’s next great city and because of its diversity leaders must work together to promote the universal virtues of community, love and respect to highlight that no matter what our differences may be, we are brothers and sisters with unique and inherent dignity.
This event is the first of its kind for St Patrick’s Cathedral, Parramatta, which is collaborating with the City of Parramatta on the complementary events.
The City of Parramatta’s Winterlight Festival in 2016 had over 110 000 attendees over a two-week period and Light Up St Pat’s collaboration is destined to attract even more attendees, making this one of the largest events held in Parramatta.
