Lumière - Art festival in Cape Breton
Lumiere Cape Breton

Contemporary Art. Unconventional spaces.

Held each September, Lumière is a transformative art festival that takes place in Sydney, Cape Breton. The festival consists of workshops and community events, and culminates in a spectacular art-at-night event.

See you September 22, 23, & 24th, 2016!

Lumière 2016

The sixth annual Lumière Arts Festival will be held in the Sydney Waterfront District, September 22nd-24th, 2016. The signature art-at-night event, held Saturday September 24th from 6:57-11:57pm, is going to be an extraordinary experience for artists and audiences alike. Lumière will feature 43 projects from around the country – many from right here in Cape Breton – in this year’s definitive cultural event. The festival has been growing each year, and an estimated 10,000 are expected to visit Sydney Waterfront District for Lumière 2016.
