GLOW Downtown Winter Light Festival

GLOW - Downtown Winter Light Festival, February 17 – 20, 2017

GLOW looks to fill in the darkness during our typically coldest and most challenging month of the year with this free, family-friendly festival.

Experience 12 light art installations created by the collaboration of 21 different artists, at unique downtown sites. Check our schedule for events happening over the weekend.

The Calgary Downtown Association (CDA) is pleased to launch the inaugural run of GLOW Downtown Winter Light Festival over the Family Day long weekend, February 17 – 20, 2017.

Each night from 6:30pm to 11pm public spaces throughout the downtown core will be lit with one-of-a-kind installations, projections, theatrical experiences and interactive light art commissioned from artists, representing local, national and international talent.

The installations will be linked by our Festival Hubs where festival goers can find information, refreshments and special performances. Some sites will be connected by Calgary’s unique Plus15 skywalk network, hotels and parking garages to make the experience easy and accessible for all.

A map of all art installations and special events can be found at this website.
