It began in 2014 as a simple, beautiful, elegant way to bring light to the West End during its darkest season. This year, re-envisioned Lumière Festival will embrace all of Downtown Vancouver with its warmth while shining a light on local artists. Returning November 17-27 with the theme: Dream the Future, elements of light, art and storytelling will be woven together to redefine winter as a season of inspiration and connection.
