Luminato Festival ~ Toronto
June 6 ~ 17, 2023
An Arts Festival That Knows No Bounds
Founded in 2007 by David Pecaut and Tony Gagliano, Luminato Festival Toronto is an international arts festival dedicated to big, bold contemporary works of art that cut across traditional artistic boundaries of music, dance, theatre, and visual art. Originally created to help Toronto rebuild after the SARS epidemic, Luminato works at the intersection of artists, spectators, and city spaces to produce once-in-a-lifetime experiences that highlight the very best of our city, region, and country.
Each June, Luminato kicks off the summer with a festival that welcomes the world to Toronto. In its first decade, Luminato became a preeminent international arts festival in North America, with more than 3,600 performances featuring 15,000+ artists from over 40 countries. Today, the festival is one of Canada’s most active commissioning bodies, having commissioned 100+ new works across artistic disciplines.
We believe that the arts are essential in building stronger, more connected communities and that creativity can inspire and change the world. In our increasingly complex world, Luminato provides a creative sanctuary that starts conversations, inspires audiences, and gives art a real-world context.
