Lights On Stratford will light up this winter Friday, December 15th, 2023 through Saturday, January 13th, 2024, Thursdays through Sundays 5:00-10:00 P.M.

Launched in 2020 during the pandemic, the award-winning 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. Visit LightsOnStratford.ca for full details.

The Lights On Stratford 2023/24 theme is EMERGENCE – Just as something comes to light or shows up where there was darkness or nothing before, an emergence happens.


The Festival will feature Made-in-Stratford light displays along the Light Trail connecting Market Square to Tom Patterson Island. As in previous years, storefronts and locations throughout the City will be lit up with unique displays and experiences.

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, crafting a truly unique experience that you can’t find anywhere else.

Come see Stratford in a different light!
