Winterlit outdoor light festival just west of Toronto

Mountsberg Conservation Area, well known as a raptor and nature centre, is also a popular destination for a Christmas Village with Santa experience and the annual Sugar Bush festival has also added Winterlit running from the end of December 2023 to February 19, 2024.

From Winterlit's website, "Add some whimsy to your winter nights and plan your visit to Mountsberg’s award-winning display of outdoor lights at Winterlit. Enjoy a moonlit stroll along two different trails featuring sustainably sourced, illuminated art installations. This unique evening out is a celebration of nature, winter, and community."

Some of the activities you can find in the part are two illuminated trails, including one through the sugar bush, illuminated art installations and fireside lounges. And on only two weekend nights can you see the upgraded experience during the Enchanted Evenings where you can take in the licensed bar, watch light and fire performers, magicians, listen to live musicians and buy some savoury treats.

In Toronto one of my favourite lighting installations happened in the Distillery District but sadly they have stopped holding the light fest. The last one was in 2020 and you can see some of it in my post here. However you can visit the free "Lumière: The Art of Light will temporarily transform Trillium Park, at Ontario Place, March 12 to April 20, 2024." Another choice will be the upcoming free interactive Illuminite by the Downtown Yonge BIA during the entire month of March, 2024.
