The 2016 Event

Light Nelson 2016 charmed and enthralled 55,000 people over five nights of blessedly perfect winter weather. The city embraced Light Nelson, it puts a little bit of magic into people’s lives in the mid-winter. As a community, we can’t underestimate the importance of people coming out to share an experience and to talk to each other; or the opportunity for absolutely everyone to engage with the arts in a way that is totally accessible and non-threatening. Thanks to all our artists and their teams, sponsors, volunteers, Luminaries, supporters and you the public - we couldn't do it without you.
