About

Valoa Oulu! light festival brightens up the dark November days when there will only be few hours of daylight available in Oulu. The festival will be taking over the surroundings of the Market Square of Oulu, the City Library and the City Theatre during 20-29 November 2015. The northern light festival will be organised for the third time already this year. Approximately 20 000 visitors participate in the festival each year. The spotlight will be turned into the renewed Market Square as well as into the City landmarks; the Theatre, the Library and Kivisydän, the new underground parking facility. Visitors can enjoy light installations, for example, in Kiikeli, in Vänmanninsaari and in Linnansaari. This year the programme of Valoa Oulu! light festival will be more versatile than ever before. There will be workshops, performances and events, which invite the audience to participate as well as gaming events and light shows available at the festival. The festival is suitable for the entire family and it is free of charge. During the festival it will also be possible to get to know the permanent light installations in different parts of the City centre of Oulu. This year the programme will be complemented by regional events such as Maakinen marraskuu in Martinniemi, Valoa Koiteli! in Kiiminki, Valoa, tarinoita ja kauhua in Kierikki as well as the Old Times Christmas Fair in Oulunsalo. Sense of community plays a substantial role in the Valoa Oulu! festival. This year’s communal work of art will be created in cooperation with teachers and pupils from Oulu. ‘Robotus’ communal work of art is designed by the Oulu based sculptor Tiina Vehkaperä. The light installation will be on display on the island of Elba in Kiikeli. Festival is organized by the City of Oulu, Education and cultural services / Events, partnerships and urban culture unit.
