The Toronto Light Fest is back and brighter than ever!

The fourth annual Toronto Light Festival is now open at The Distillery District

TORONTO, January 17, 2020 – Toronto Light Festival begins today in The Distillery District. Free to the public, Toronto Light Fest runs daily until March 1st and will include both daytime and nighttime programming.

Guests of the festival will be taken on an imaginative journey filled with interactive installations, designed to entertain and inspire. The festival is meant to add a little light to some of the darkest months of the year. Walk through an immersive sea of lights, swing from the clouds, and take in bright, blossoming flowers. 

The Toronto Light Festival is a visual journey and imaginative cerebral adventure designed to entertain and inspire. During the cold, dark days of winter, city residents are invited out of their traditional indoor habitats to experience one of the largest open-air lighting galleries in North America at The Distillery District. The event exhibits the creativity of local and international light artists and takes place January 17 to March 1. For more information, visit
