Cavalcade of Lights 2021 to be firework free

The very popular Toronto light festival will begin Saturday, November 27 in Nathan Phillips Square and continue with a month-long lighting display. The 55 year old tradition is known as the official start of the holiday season and has pared down because of covid precautions and removed both the fireworks segment and the stage concert.

On the 27th from 3-11 pm you can watch the official lighting of the 58 foot Christmas tree, watch pop-up performances both in the square and on the ice rink and see enhanced lighting installations. The lighting displays will last until January 2, 2022.

From the City's news Cavalcade of Lights news release:

• "Ice-skating performances by Toronto’s Trinity Synchronized skating team, Montreal-based Le Patin Libre, national ice-skating champions and world bronze medalists Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier
• Aerial and acrobatic performances by Duo Christa and Erick
• Klezmer-inspired musical performances by Beyond the Pale
• PassioN'Strings flamenco performances with Carmen Romero Company and Jonathan Garabedian (violin)
• Bollywood dance by Kanushree Jain
• Lantern installation by Muse Arts

New holiday lighting installations will be revealed, along with special programming, including skating presentations, site activations and live performances that will be ongoing from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. The public can watch the first lighting of Toronto’s Christmas tree online on Saturday, November 27 at

Taking inspiration from light festivals and cultural celebrations around the world, Cavalcade of Lights will include elements from a variety of traditions for its new, enhanced lighting installations. As part of this year's month-long celebration, the public can also explore tunnels made from thousands of energy-efficient bulbs, discover glowing ice sculptures in an enchanted forest (weather dependent) and a luminous lantern garden."
