It may be a cold and dark outside, but don’t worry — for the third year in a row, hundreds and thousands of lights will be illuminating Toronto’s Distillery District in a magical display.

Bringing over 30 light-art installations and illuminated sculptures from local and international artists to the historic Distillery District, the Toronto Light Festival should not be missed.

The free light festival will be taking over the area from January 18 till March 3, 2019 — so you have plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful installations!

Get your cameras ready, and take a look at some photos from previous years to prepare yourself for this year’s festivities and magic.
