A street piano, an outdoor synthetic ice skating rink and live music will highlight a one-of-a-kind community party in Ingleburn to celebrate the longest night of the year.

Into the Night will be held next Friday, June 21 and is a result of feedback from the recent Love Ingleburn consultation sessions where residents expressed that they wanted more night time and community events in Ingleburn.

The event forms part of Campbelltown Council's Love Ingleburn place-making project, with beautification works taking place across the city to bring vibrancy to Ingleburn and build on the village feel that residents value.

Mayor George Brticevic said council had received community feedback and had planned a great night of entertainment and family fun.

"This event will help local businesses and the community to thrive and foster that sense of village and community that people enjoy most about Ingleburn," he said.

Into the Night will include the unveiling of a piano that will be gifted to Ingleburn Village and remain in the centre for everyone to enjoy.

Local musician Lauren Azar will perform a variety of music on the piano.

Little Orange artist Jess Pound will unveil her colourful street mural, a permanent public artwork that is an extension of the garden beds on Oxford Road.

People can also contribute to a live action artwork she will be painting at the event.

The night will also include:

  • A heated outdoor dining precinct with dessert food trucks and takeaway food specials available from local restaurants and cafes.
  • Photos of people at Ingleburn Alive projected as part of the Faces of Ingleburn project.
  • Stargazing with Macarthur Astronomical Society.
  • Free synthetic ice skating experience.
  • Free face painting.
  • Free outdoor play gym for children aged five and under.

Into the Night will be held on Oxford Road, between Ingleburn and Macquarie roads, from 5-9pm on June 21.
