UPDATE ON 2020 SYDNEY CANDLELIGHT MEMORIAL

Due to the evolving situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), the 2020 Sydney Candlelight Memorial will be postponed and not take place this year as originally scheduled. ACON and Positive Life NSW are working on other ways to commemorate the day, while observing public health measures and physical distancing guidelines. We will provide an update shortly after Monday 6 April and thank you for your support and understanding.


The AIDS Candlelight Memorial is a time when members of the community can come together and reflect on and remember all those who have passed away from HIV/AIDS.

At the memorial, names are read out by a cross section of the community, including family members, partners, young and old.

The annual AIDS Candlelight Memorial is now held on International Remembrance Day, which is on the 3rd Sunday of May each year.

Keynote speaker and performers to be announced.  

We hope you can join us.
