Maitland Riverlights Festival

Riverlights really shines at night, with the popular festival parade and magical lantern flotilla featured on the Hunter River; an unforgettable family experience.

At Greater Bank, we’re customer-owned, which means we genuinely care about strengthening the communities we call home. Maitland celebrates a rich culture and we are proud to help showcase this locally and to the greater Hunter region.

Read on to find out more about what to expect at Riverlights 2019.

Helping Riverlights shine

Greater Bank returned as Major Event Sponsor of Maitland Riverlights Multicultural Festival in 2018, bringing fun, food, entertainment and education to Hunter locals. As part of the day's events, Greater Bank presented $1,000 to each of our three winning #GreaterRiverlights schools, for their outstanding Riverlights lantern designs. Thanks to Maitland City Council, My Maitland and all our staff volunteers who made this event such a huge success.
