The traditional Festival of Light will fill Tampere with lights and colours in the darkest time of the year. Familiar light decorations from previous years and the new, surprising installations will be lit on Friday, October 23rd, and continue to delight us until March 14th 2021.
This year, due to the COVID-19 situation, there will not be any grand public opening. The darkening autumn nights will be however celebrated with the Dancing waters -shows in Tammerkoski rapids every evening from Oct 23 to 31 between 7 pm and 10 pm, every 10 minutes. The unique atmosphere of the show is created by combining water, light and music - the water will spray up to tens of meters, dancing to the rhythm of the music together with the lights.
Please do not join the festivities if you have even the slightest symptoms of illness. We recommend wearing a mask and maintaining the 2 metre distances at all times.
There will also be a lot of walls and features lit throughout the event - find out more in here.
