Candlelight Festival


Candlelight Festival wordmark

The Candlelight Festival is an annual holiday experience that invites you to come and explore the seasonal transformation of downtown Port Hope beginning November 27.

Aligning with the government’s mandate to maintain physical distancing efforts, the 2020 Port Hope Candlelight Festival will be modified to include both virtual and self-guided exploration activities this year. As such, the marketplace is going virtual and the Candlelight Walk and park lighting ceremony have been cancelled.
Details about fun new art installations and downtown holiday shopping hours will be announced soon. 
Registration is open for the virtual vendor market; spaces limited.
The Candlelight Festival is delivered in partnership by the Municipality of Port Hope, Critical Mass Art and the Port Hope Heritage Business Association. We continue to monitor the pandemic and as such event continuity may be affected.
