Every holiday season, Yonge-Dundas Square gets into the festive spirit with one of Toronto’s most beloved holiday traditions – Illuminite.

Now in its 10th year, Illuminite will take over Yonge- Dundas Square on November 18th with its annual tree lighting ceremony.

Each year, Illuminite features an incredible evening filled with dance performances, light shows, acrobats and of course, the ceremonial lighting of the square’s 40-foot tree which glows with more than 52,000 LED lights. There will also be a number of 3D illuminated polar bears and other unique holiday lighting installations.

Illuminite will kick off with a performance from Toronto rock-pop quartet Jane’s Party who will get the party started with some holiday classics to get you moving. This will be followed by the incredible tree-lighting show from TDC Entertainment, featuring a performance from renowned acapella group Countermeasure Music, and an LED drumline from 416 BEATS in addition to breathtaking aerialists and dancers.

If you have yet to get into the holiday spirit, you definitely will at Illuminite 2017.
