Celebrate the winter nights (really!) with GLOW! Downtown Calgary is presenting this family-friendly light, art, and music festival from February 14 to 18, 2019. This FREE, all-ages event will be located at three main hubs in the downtown core: Olympic Plaza, Harley Hotchkiss Garden, and Brookfield Place. A variety of events will be held at secondary hubs and you can check the schedule here.

Every night from 5 to 11 pm, you can enjoy an array of one of a kind installations, interactive light art commissioned from artists representing local, national and international talent, projections, theatrical experiences, music and food trucks. Bring downtown Calgary to life this winter!


Dance your winter blues away this February when Olympic Plaza is transformed into a warm, dynamic world of light and music. BassBus, in partnership with Glow and the Calgary Downtown Association, are proud to present Nightlight, the inaugural annual downtown community dance event.

This free, family friendly evening will be filled with wonder and excitement as Olympic Plaza will spark into vibrant life with BassBus’ signature blend of event production. Famous for their Canada Day party and Circle Carnival, BassBus will once again gather artists, musicians and Calgarians the city over to craft a warm, vibrant, luminescent space in the centre of our city.

Everyone is strongly encouraged to dress warmly, wear their best glowing costume and dive into the Nightlight experience. Admission is free. All ages are welcome. This is an alcohol free event.
