• ILLUMIN8: Festival of Light and Peace


Celebration of peace and harmony inspired by Buddha’s life, at the Great Stupa of Universal Compassion, the biggest Stupa in the southern hemisphere, home of the world’s biggest jade Buddha. 

Held annually in May, ILLUMIN8 is a three-day family friendly event. It celebrates peace and harmony through different light installations, multicultural performances, food and market stalls, family entertainment and a spectacular animated light and fireworks show on The Great Stupa. Note: The light show is only on Friday and Saturday evening. 

With different activities across the weekend, immerse yourself in all the experiences the festival has to offer. Wander the Peace Park and interact with different light sculptures, be amazed by the on-stage and roaming performances, take a selfie with the Stupa, enjoy delicious vegetarian and vegan food, join in on activities with the kids in the family zone and browse market stalls.

Don’t miss the highlight of the event – on Friday and Saturday nights view an incredible animated light projection on The Great Stupa telling the story of Buddha’s life, finished with an amazing show of fireworks.
