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.

Despite the cancellation, many content producers and partners have wanted to offer glimpses of light into the November darkness.

The following contents can be seen in and around the city:
