First Light: 20 Years Of Illuminating History

At Saint-Marie Among The Hurons

Adorned with over 5000 candles, First Light is a beautiful event that combines a historic site with food, music, and all-around holiday cheer.

Along with the breathtaking candlelit walk, there is also a marketplace with over 50 artists and crafters, hands-on crafts for kids, tons of live music, and fireworks on November 29th and December 7th. When you’re finished with all that you can also enjoy a delicious dinner at Restaurant Saint-Marie, warm up with a hot drink on the patio, or cook some s’mores over the fire.

First Light takes place on November 21st to 23rd, November 28th to 30th, and again from December 5th to 7th so there are plenty of opportunities to plan a trip. It starts at 530 PM and goes until 9 PM every night, tickets are only $10 (with a non-perishable food donation), and kids under 5 are free.
