Vantaa in Light

When the dark season comes, Vantaa turns on the lights. Myriad works of light emblazon the streets, buildings, squares, and marketplaces. In addition, the darkening season is filled with events such as the new light-art festival Reflektor Korso.

Reflektor Korso

Vantaa's first light-art festival, Reflektor Korso, will take place in Korso on September 27-29, 2019. The event introduces a route surrounded by eight works of light art in Korso's Ankkapuisto forest area and in Korso sports park.

Along the route you will encounter light art by both Finnish and foreign artists. The event is free of charge and the entire family is welcome! You can familiarize yourself with the works during the weekend from 18:00 to 23:00.

Reflektor Korso’s basic idea is a dark environment, free of junk light. The impact of light art is based on darkness, and Reflektor’s route from Ankkapuisto forest area to the sports park generates an interesting contrast between nature and urban environment. When the full sports park lights are turned off and replaced by light art, the effect is breathtaking. The dark forest is usually only lighted by the stars in the night, but light art casts a magical atmosphere over the familiar outdoor recreation areas.

Works of light art in Vantaa

Light art brings joy to different districts in Vantaa! Some of the works will automatically turn on with the darkening fall and winter evenings, whereas some are seasonally lighted, which means that they will be in use or, for example, change colors based on a specific season.

This fall we are highlighting Vantaa pearls of light. Information about the works of art will be updated on this website, and we hope that they will bring joy to all Vantaa residents and visitors to the city.
