Glow Festival

GLOW – Downtown Winter Light Festival, February 14 to February 18, 2019.

The Calgary Downtown Association (CDA) presents the second edition of GLOW – Downtown Winter Light Festival over the Family Day long weekend.

Each night public spaces throughout the downtown core will be lit with one-of- a-kind installations, projections, theatrical experiences and interactive light art commissioned from artists, representing local, national and international talent.

February Long Weekend

The installations will be linked by our Festival Hubs where festival goers can find information, refreshments and special performances. Some sites will be connected by Calgary’s unique Plus15 skywalk network, hotels and parking garages to make the experience easy and accessible for all.


Come enjoy and be apart of the fun throughout the festival down at Olympic Plaza form awesome Art Installations to Love Lights on Valentines to a BassBus dance party to Live Music Night and so much more.

GLOW looks to fill in the darkness during our typically coldest and most challenging month of the year with this free, family-friendly festival.
