Toronto Light Festival – The city’s largest light art festival is back again this year by popular demand at the Distillery District. Starting today, January 19 until March 4, the historic neighbourhood will be transformed into one of the largest open-air galleries in North America. The festival starts at sundown daily, featuring more than 30 light art pieces, and is free to the public.
Visitors of the Toronto Light Festival will be taken on a visual journey, designed to entertain and inspire. Don’t miss the Gummy Bear light pyramide, a light art-piece that has been created with “gummy bears”, Gotham 911, where the “Batman-calling sign” goes on every 2 minutes, and the ZOA, just to name a few.
Also, from Thursdays to Sundays, snacks and sweets stands will be open, selling : waffles on a stick, hot chocolate and sugar-coated pretzels.
For the second edition of the Festival, discover more than 30 light art installation from local and international artists. Works will range from interactive displays to light projections to inspiring sculptures, by artists from Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. Some light art-pieces have been recovered from Burning Man 2018 Festival , such as : Heavy Meta ( a fire-breathing dragon) and Reaching Through, an interactive made-with-car-pieces sculpture.
