OUR PURPOSE 

Since 1990, the Honda Celebration of Light has united Vancouverites and visitors alike
in a celebration of community, music, food, and fireworks.

Each year, we invite hundreds of thousands of people to join in an epic block party and share in the spectacular energy the festival creates. As BC’s largest live event, we’re proud to create an atmosphere of celebration, inclusion, and belonging.

We do this through:

UNITING COMMUNITIES

We believe in sparking wonder & pride in our community through the creation of free, engaging spaces for the public to gather. Whether you have a longstanding tradition or are new to the merriment, each year the festival offers a chance to connect and make memories that last a lifetime.

FOSTERING TALENT

We advocate for the creation of opportunities for BC-based and emerging artists to hone their skills while playing to large public audiences. We believe that success starts at home and that the growth of local artists means success for Vancouver as a vibrant music city.

CREATING SAFE SPACES

We value creating inclusive spaces for friends and families to take part in the celebration. From the diversity of our participating fireworks teams and countries to accessible viewing areas and free programming for the public to enjoy; we work with municipal authorities to continually develop public safety and crowd management plans that create safe spaces for 1.25 million attendees to enjoy.

BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Join our volunteer crew to take part in the committed community that works to spark wonder and pride at the Honda Celebration of Light each year.

OUR SUSTAINABILITY PLAN  

In 2019 The Honda Celebration of Light will take further incremental measures to increase the sustainability of the event and decrease its environmental impact. Year over year, we will tackle single-use plastics, our carbon footprint, waste reduction, and internal event processes in order to keep Vancouver’s iconic parks, sea, and sky as pristine as possible.

As such, for 2019, we are challenging our Food Vendor, Partners and Suppliers to join us by using and distributing only 100% Certified Compostable packaging and napkins, as well as refraining from selling or distributing any single-use plastic bottles (water or pop), dishware, lids, straws, bags, and utensils. Sustainability is a journey and we look forward to having you join us on this journey for many years to come!
