Lights On Stratford

Lights On Stratford

"One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things."

- Henry Miller

Launched in 2020 during the pandemic, the Lights On Stratford annual winter festival will once again transform Stratford’s heritage downtown core and park system with luminous art and interactive light installations.

Stratford is home to some of the world’s best artists, lighting designers, props builders and creative minds. Lights On Stratford will support and collaborate with these artists to harness this precious resource of local talent, crafting a truly unique experience that can’t be found anywhere else.

The Lights On Stratford 2021 theme is JOURNEY – “an act of traveling from one place to another.” As we emerge from the constraints of having to stay home, missing our friends, family or favourite places; the sense of wonder and delight experienced within a journey will be celebrated anew. This year, Lights On Stratford aims to bring the adventure of travel to the public spaces of Stratford by showcasing exhibits that explore motion, transportation, worldly (and other-worldly) landmarks and multicultural exhibits of light.

Free to the public and designed to be safely enjoyed with physical distancing and on-site staff, Lights On Stratford will light up this winter starting December 17th, 2021 through to January 21st, 2022.
