The Countdown is on:festival

The Festival of Northern Lights in Owen Sound started in 1987 and has grown into a must see display of statues, creatures, scenes and lights. Lots of lights.

Depending on what the weather is up to, the displays look different every time you visit them and each year there are new displays added.


The opening celebration and lighting of the lights has moved to Saturday from Friday. This year’s opening will be on Saturday November 19th. Events for the whole family begin at 3pm and the fireworks and the ceremonial lighting will happen at 7:00pm. For a list of events and times CLICK HERE
