LIGHT IS ENERGIZING. LIGHT IS REVITALIZING.

Edmonton, the most northern city in North America with a population of over one million, is a world-renowned winter metropolis with the proud title of Festival City. People are eager to enjoy activities in their fine city year-round. Our annual Zoominescence, a Festival of Light celebration is our way of spreading that light and illuminating the spirit of Edmonton.
Each December, Zoominescence, a Festival of Light, hosted by the Valley Zoo Development Society, stages a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The festival’s vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the strong spirit of our community in the winter.
