    This year, the City of Light event will take place on 29.9.-8.10.2022. The event will take place partly on a new route, as the trail will lead from Kirkkopuisto via Cygnaeuspuisto to Lounaispuisto, and from there to the Promenade.

    The event will be featuring, once again, a variety of light art and light-themed side events.

    Lighting sites are an important part of Jyväskylä's cityscape. They support the earlier architectural design and during the twilight hours, they serve to highlight interesting details of the area. There are already more than a hundred permanent lighting destinations in Jyväskylä.

    Coordinated by the City of Jyväskylä, the City of Light is responsible for the city's nightscape and constantly aims to use the latest lighting technology in the city's infrastructure. Above all, the aim is to create a safe, comfortable and energy-saving environment for Jyväskylä's residents, businesses and visitors.

    Construction of the City of Light installations and ambient lighting has started on Monday 26 September. Some of the artists from abroad have already arrived in Jyväskylä over the weekend and were able to check out the sites of their installations well on time.
