There is no doubt that March is the time that Canberra really shines, nothing like a girl in her birthday month right?! There is a bunch of celebrations by day and night and the weather is still warm enough to enjoy the outdoors.
Canberra Outlet’s Inspire
On March 5th just before International Woman’s Day, Canberra Outlet will be bringing back their Inspire event. The event plays homage to the amazingly talented woman in business and leadership in the ACT, designed to inspire others to chase their career and personal goals. They will also be joined by Samantha Wills who will share insights into business and life. There is only a few tickets left so get in quick.

The Social Club
Canberra’s favourite night time festival showcases our National attractions in a whole new (colourful) light. Enjoy the gorgeous transitional videos across OPH, the National Library, Gallery and more. While the celebrations are sans Noodle Markets this year there is still plenty of food to enjoy. BentSpoke Beer Garden is offering up a selection of their locally brewed beer and cider plus an exclusive beer to commemorate Skywhale’s new partner in crime. Take a trip down Enlighten Alley for local street eats and entertainment.
After Dark until Monday March 8th
Canberra sunrises are a must see at anytime but the Balloon Spectacular is a whole other level. The annual balloon festival takes place on the lawns of Old Parliament House. Gates open from 5:45am with balloons launching about 6:15am weather permitting. Word on the street is there may just be a magical unicorn in the sky, joining old favourites.
