Vilnius Light Festival

For the capital’s birthday, Vilnius locals and guests were amazed by the fifth Vilnius Light Festival, which took place on 25-28 January. The theme of this year’s festival was futurism. The artists who came to Vilnius from France, Canada, the United Kingdom, Holland, Spain and Italy expanded the limits of the imagination and forced us to look at the world around us with new eyes.

To mark the city’s 700th anniversary, the authentic courtyards of the Baroque Old Town of Vilnius were opened, and the main symbols of the city were illuminated. Light art was on display in the capital’s most famous streets and squares. The Vilnius Light Festival app included the festival route and helped visitors explore the open-air art gallery. The app was available for downloading or updating on the App Store or Google Play.

During the festival, it was also possible to see Time Portal – a narrative created by video projections about the symbols of Vilnius, its past and its future that was shown in Cathedral Square, on the façade of the Cathedral. On 25 January, the video projection was on display after the main birthday event from 21:00 to 23:00, and then on 26-28 January – from 18:30 to 23:00.

Date: 25-28 January 2023.

Time: 18:00 – 23:00 every day

Address: Various places around Vilnius.

Entry: Free of charge.
