Oxford's Christmas Light Festival

A festival of Arts, Culture and Community

...celebrating our communities

20-22 November 2020

Oxford’s Christmas Light Festival 2020 will be bringing activity out from the city centre into the residential areas of our local oxford communities with creativity that spills out of people’s houses.  


Our words of inspiration for this years festival are: * be the light * build back better * green recovery * new beginnings * my community * being thankful * light *


We’ll be creating lots of resources to help people get involved so keep popping back to this site to find out more  about how to help your street come alive over the weekend of 20-22 November 2020!

Well over 100 events take place over the weekend including dozens from the city’s cultural organisations. Residents and visitors can enjoy an unparalleled experience of Oxford’s streets, open spaces and buildings historical and modern.

New and exciting light and sound installations can be found all around the city centre. Get involved in interactive and digital projects. Watch the iconic lantern parade with our local young people.
