Maitland Riverlights Multicultural Festival will be moved from Saturday 7 October 2017 to Saturday 10 February 2018 due to limited and restricted access to the Hunter River as construction on The Levee Development Component Two is completed.
Riverlights remains an important event for our community and will also return again on 13 October 2018, meaning there will be two festivals next year, allowing it to return to its regular timeslot.
Keep up to date with information regarding the festival by checking the website regularly, or getting social via The Levee Central Maitland on Facebook.
