The "Glowing Lights" Festival Near Montreal You Need To Road Trip To This Summer

A journey into a neon wonderland.

Now that winter is over, is there anything on this earth more fun than road tripping with friends, discovering new adventures and experiencing once in a lifetime events?

Combine that with the super fun vibe you get from a massive outdoor music festival, and you pretty much get the ultimate summer activity.

Well, it just so happens there's an event coming up this June that'll quench both your thirst for the open road, and for amazing outdoor fun you don't want to miss!

Back for its 3rd edition, the Glowfair Festival takes over our nation’s capital for two whole days of sensational entertainment, glowing lights, and eye-popping décor unlike anything you've seen before, all entirely free!

Bringing together tens of thousands of people to celebrate an endless wave of mind-blowing experiences, calling this just an outdoor festival doesn't quite do it justice, though. The Glowfair Festival is more of a journey into a neon wonderland.

Shutting down 10 blocks of Ottawa’s downtown core, Glowfair Festival is bigger and better than ever with dazzling street performers, out-of-this-world costumes, electrifying live music, stunning art installations, and unforgettable sights to suit all ages.

Each area will have its own immersive theme, such as the Enchanted Forest, Bizarre Bazaar, Art Chaos, and Glowfit, all featuring unique street activities and wild entertainment.

There will be plenty of live music too, with two different stages (one for live music, one for DJs) showcasing some of the most compelling artists in Canada, including headliners Keys N Krates and Dragonette on the Glowzone Mainstage, and Lissa Monet and AutoErotique on the Soundboard DJ stage.

And because no good party ends at 11pm, Glowfair Festival's Silent Disco is back by overwhelming demand so that festival-goers can use Bluetooth-enabled headsets to party and dance until 2am.

To make this year’s edition even more enticing, organizers are offering a chance to win a free night's stay at the brand-new Alt Hotel Ottawa, as well as VIP passes at the Main Stage, dinner on Bank Street, and a VIP swag bag just for good measure.
