Québec City Lights Festival
December 21 to 31, 2013
Everyday • all day
Quebec, a city that glows! On December 21st, the day marking the winter solstice and longest night of the year, Québec City will emerge from the shadows and light up with the arrival of the Québec City Lights Festival. A true symbol of a young, creative and effervescent city, the festival celebrates the arrival of winter and the holiday season by lighting up the town and allowing its Nordic appeal, history and unique architecture to shine bright. Every evening from December 21st to 31st, enjoy a ludic, immersive and bright experience in the heart of Old Quebec!
The Boreal path is inspired by the great north as experienced in Québec City. Between Place D’Youville and Grande Allée, strollers experience a flood of playful light showsthat capture the hearts and minds of all ages.
As the holiday season approaches, lights brighten up and pepper their surroundings. Designed to compliment the Lights Festival, the Affinity Lights brighten Québec and evoke the wonderland of a snowy capital scattered with lights..
