Lyon to Celebrate Annual Festival of Light

If you have clients headed to France this winter, suggest they swing by Lyon to check out the annual Festival of Light from December 6-9.

Inspired by a secular tradition, the Lyon Festival of Lights will showcase the best creations of lighting designers. For four evenings, designers, artists, architects, video filmmakers and lighting engineers will take over the city's buildings, squares, the rivers and hills, giving a whole new perspective on the town and its architecture. Nearly 3 million French and foreign visitors are expected.



For the 14th Festival of Lights, the creative works will tell the history of light, its usages and representations. They will play with its shapes and bring out the very best of the city. More than 70 performances and light installations are being prepared for staging, from intimate to grandiose and even interactive settings.

This year’s Festival of Lights will take on a distinctively contemporary tone, with a focus on the south sector of the city, down to the Confluence district. And after last year’s popular Japanese floats from Fukuno, visitors this year can explore a celebration of India on a specially illuminated trail.
