Nuit Rose Light Parade
Nuit Rose, Toronto’s annual queer art and performance festival, returns for its third year and, for 2016, the Light Parade joins the Pride Month celebrations, too.
The Light Parade is an open, community event that begins at sunset. Wear or carry a light-emitting object and come walk with us! Beginning at Norman Jewison Park, east of Yonge Street, the parade will proceed through the parkettes and then onto Church Street. Free lantern-making workshops will be offered before the Light Parade, designed and led by Red Pepper Spectacle Arts, producers of the annual Kensington Market Winter Solstice Celebration.
Nuit Rose showcases provocative, cutting edge work by diverse artists, offering unique, transformational encounters with art across the city on one unforgettable night. This year’s theme, Night Shift, will be featured at indoor and outdoor venues in two neighbourhoods: Church/Wellesley Village and West Queen West. Look for installations at The 519, the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives, Artscape Youngplace, and the Gladstone Hotel, among others. Set the night ablaze at the Nuit Rose and the Light Parade. Come and share the light.
