Illuminate Yaletown 2019

Illuminate Yaletown

Yaletown is set to be decorated with a series of breathtaking light installations for the 10 year reunion of Illuminate Yaletown.

Taking place for one night only, on Friday, March 8th, visitors will be able to experience a free light art exhibition like no other.

Illuminate Yaletown will showcase never-before seen light art installations, as well as classics from past festivals – all in the heart of Yaletown.


Additionally, Hamilton Street will be closed off to vehicles to really highlight these incredible light installations.

Visitors can look forward to engaging with interactive exhibitions such as ‘Flow’, a sculptural form sensitive to touch, and ‘Jax’, a giant inflatable game piece. Leveraging tech never seen before in Vancouver, Illuminate Yaletown is also excited to secure ‘Tetra’, which encourages visitors to build their own sculpture made of light.

That’s not all.

There will be a ‘robot invasion’ of stilt walkers and LED dancers, and an ‘Infinity Mirror World’ – culminating in an unmissable event packed with amazing photo opportunities. Guests can also strike a pose at a 12 ft. lit-up foliage wall, play on LED swings, or even try their hand at the digital graffiti wall to create their own custom street art.

Subsequently, a number of the neighbourhood’s local bars, including House Special, White Lounge and Opus Bar, will be offering a special ‘606 cocktail’ – in theme with the sun setting at 6:06 p.m.
