Illuminate Arts Festival 💡
October 1, 2022 @ 6:00 pm – October 2, 2022 @ 3:00 am
Saturday, October 1 | 6pm – 3am | Downtown Fredericton | Free
Illuminate Arts Festival is a free outdoor event highlighting art and performance, from dusk to dawn, on unceded Wolastoqey Territory in Downtown Fredericton, NB. Guided by a festival map, visitors can explore the city in a new light, experiencing an array of pop-up art installations, performances, interactive art displays, and more.
Illuminate shines a light on a diversity of lived experiences, narratives, and ideas through public art and performance. Illuminate seeks to engage audiences, providing new and accessible opportunities to interact with the arts and explore local environments, inspired by the global phenomenon Nuit Blanche.
Illuminate is presented by Fierté Fredericton Pride, a non-profit, volunteer-led organization that strives to promote inclusion and intersectionality in celebrating and advocating for 2SLGBTQ+ individuals and communities. The inaugural edition of Illuminate is funded in part by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
