Here’s our hit list of five things to do across Albury Wodonga and surrounds this weekend.
Community – Winter Solstice, Albury
Help shine a light on the darkest night of the year, Friday 21 June. Gather in the warm embrace of community for one night to support those affected by suicide. Be inspired and uplifted by stories and songs. Guest speakers include Rosie Batty, Steve Willis and Kathy Kelly. The Winter Solstice Albury Wodonga is at QEII Square, Albury from 5pm on Friday night.
Arts & Culture – Retrospect: Community Installation Project, Wodonga
Artist Vicki Luke will lead the installation of a series of memory veils reflecting community thought, voice, creativity and passion – that’s the Memory Imaginarium, one of three key installations during their final exhibition Retrospect: Community Installation Project.
This installation will also feature a projection that recalls the artwork from exhibitions featured over the past 15 years.
Throughout the exhibition, there will be a series of installations and activities facilitated by local artists which will allow everyone to leave their mark on the gallery.
Laughs – Comedy in the Club, The Bended Elbow Albury
There are two nights of laughs in store at The Bended Elbow Albury. Friday night features Comedy in the Club with Eve Ellenbogen, Annie Louie and Frank Hamspter. Saturday night is Back 2 Back Comedy featuring Eve Ellenbogen and Nadine Sparks.

Food & Wine – Prosecco Food Pairing Surprises, King Valley
If you’re looking for a little outing you can do in the King Valley, consider a food and wine matching experience – Pop and Fizz, Prosecco Food Pairing Surprises at Pizzini Wines.
Be led through a 45-minute session that will introduce lesser-known aspects of the Prosecco personality. For example, who would have thought Prosecco could pair so perfectly with the likes of popcorn and blue cheese?
Markets – Albury Wodonga Farmers Market, Wodonga
Stock up on your winter vegies and other fresh produce, preserves and other goodies direct from the farmer or producer at the Albury Wodonga Farmers Market on Saturday.
Due to the development of Hovell Tree Park you’ll find them every Saturday morning at the Gateway Village, Lincoln Causeway from 8:00am to noon.
