Toronto Light Festival

The Toronto Light Festival is one the largest outside galleries in North America, featuring local and international light artists. There are 13 acres and thousands of lights to explore.

“In a world with so many dark and ominous messages, we want to create a positive, magical urban world that people of all ages and backgrounds will enjoy and look forward to. ” –  Mathew Rosenblatt, Creator & Executive Director

There is also a fire show from Fridays to Sundays from 7PM to close. Best part is, it’s free! The TLL has also partnered with Lyft to give a $10 credit to visitors on their first ride!

Check out the festival and have a lit time!
