The Toronto Light Festival offers a visual journey and a playful adventure throughout the walking streets of Toronto’s Distillery District. During the cold, dark days of winter, The Toronto Light Festival offers visitors a reason to bundle up, get outside, and celebrate the season, creativity, and life in the big city. The Festival, now in its fourth year, exhibits local and international light artists. Artworks are curated to educate, warm hearts, inspire, or just put a smile on visitors’ faces.

We wanted to create something special, a happening that would lift the collective spirit of the City. In a world with so many dark and ominous messages, our goal was to create a positive, magical urban oasis where people of all ages and backgrounds could and would enjoy together. Simply put, we want to help transform a moment of consciousness, from the cold and the dark into the warmth of the light. The festival lasts January 17-March 1, 2020. Visit for more information.
