Turn The Lights On!: Glow Returns to Georgetown, Nov. 26 – Jan. 22  

The popular Glow Festival will be shimmering once again and delighting Georgetown visitors and residents.

The much-anticipated public light art installations throughout Georgetown’s commercial district will be returning from Saturday, Nov. 26, 2022, 5-10 p.m. nightly, through Sunday, Jan. 22, 2023. This year, the two-month seasonal celebration will be in its eighth edition, per a press release from the Georgetown Improvement District (BID).

Glow is “the only light art exhibition of its kind in the region, featuring artists with a diverse range of backgrounds and perspective,” the BID said.

“We hosted special Spring and Summer editions last year due to the pandemic, and we’re thrilled to bring GLOW back to the winter months and brighten the holiday experience for our visitors,” said Nancy Miyahira, Vice President and Marketing Director for the Georgetown BID. “Our expanded, two-month experience kicks off on Small Business Saturday, and is the perfect way to celebrate the start of the holiday season after a day of shopping in support of our local merchants.”
