Lumo Light Festival Oulu 2020 cancelled due to covid-19
The Lumo Light Festival planned for 20–22 November has been cancelled. The reason is the current situation with the coronavirus and the measures to keep it from spreading.

Let’s light up November – Let’s create the Lumo phenomenon together!
Lumo invites all the residents, companies and organisations in Oulu to participate in the festival of light. Light up yourself, your mailbox, your office or your shop window, decorate a tree on your yard or do something else to illuminate your environment. Inspire your neighbours and friends to join, too.
Photograph your installation or walk around admiring lighting setups made by others and share your pictures on social media with the hashtag #lumoilmiö!
Join the phenomenon by December 13th and win a prize! On 14 December, a draw will take place between all the participants; prizes include a one-night hotel stay for two, a dinner for two, and a gift certificate for two to a clothes store.
