Lights On Stratford

Light is a powerful symbol. From darkness comes light. Lights On Stratford was born in response to the COVID-19 pandemic crisis.

Colourful new festival will highlight Stratford’s tourism recovery efforts this winter (Stratford Beacon Herald, September 1, 2020)

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

This winter festival represents a lifeline for many of these local artists and theatre professionals.

And that’s just the beginning. The beacons of Stratford-made light sculptures, displays, exhibits and projections will attract and amaze visitors, who in turn will strengthen and grow a robust and diversified year round tourism economy. This will provide much-needed support to the myriad Stratford businesses that help define the character of our city and rely on tourism for their survival.

Lights On Stratford is designed to be a high profile annual festival that delights thousands of local residents and visitors from throughout the region.

As both an economic recovery initiative and a cultural attraction, Lights On Stratford is an impactful sponsorship opportunity with integrity, prestige and unique exposure for you and/or your organization.

Become a sponsor and help bridge our community to better times while bringing light and joy to Stratford next winter.
