Lighting up the long winter nights with distinctive works from local and international light artists, the Toronto Light Festival illuminates the Distillery Historic District from January to March. Visitors are taken on a visual journey as the festival transforms the picturesque historic neighbourhood into a large open-air gallery.

This winter, Torontonians of all ages are encouraged to come out of the dark and into the light.

While you’re there, be sure to stop for a cozy meal at one of the fine restaurants that populate the District or a warming cup of authentic hot chocolate at Soma.
