Inspired by light, art, and creative expression, Lumière Vancouver in the West End returns for 2020 to illuminate dark winter nights by the sea.

Now in its 7th year, Lumière Vancouver will showcase seven amazing interactive art installations adding sparkle and excitement to two iconic sites: English Bay and Jim Deva Plaza.

Lumière Vancouver in the West End

When: November 5 – 30, 2020
Where: Jim Deva Plaza, English Bay
Admission: None/free

Returning to the foot of Denman Street is local favourite, “Davie”, a stunning, illuminated 24-foot-tall grizzly bear. Davie joins Luna, Stanley and Eugenia, a collection of nature-inspired light sculptures at English Bay that pay homage to British Columbia’s wildlife community.  

Lumière is also delighted to be bringing a new light installation to Vancouver this year, Prismatica, created by RAW Design. Prismatica is made up of countless colourful giant prisms where visitors can walk through and observe city life in every colour of the spectrum.

Throughout the month of November, special Lumière activities will also link the West End commercial streets, creating a fun and festive atmosphere that can be safely enjoyed by individuals, families, and small bubble groups of friends.  

The extension of the event dates this year has been put in place to ensure that visitors can enjoy the artwork without creating a crowd situation, therefore allowing for proper social-distancing and COVID-19 precautions.  

Select installations will remain for the balance of the winter season to be enjoyed nightly. Follow Lumière on Instagram for inspiration.
