Love Letters to Toronto October 13-17

Luminato Festival Toronto returns this October

Toronto’s international festival of arts and culture is coming October 13-17, 2021 with 5 days of art, music, dance, and theatre, combined with some digital magic. We’re thrilled to share our offering for you: a multi-disciplinary international arts festival, full of love letters to Toronto.

From Scarborough to Etobicoke, we’re travelling across Toronto’s neighbourhoods and exploring the many worlds of the city’s culture-creators, bringing you a mix of live and online events that will challenge you, inspire you, and delight you.

It’s been such a strange year and a half. We’ve missed you. Live or online, we can’t wait to see you in October.

The Land

Luminato Festival Toronto acknowledges that the land we gather on is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Chippewa and the Anishinaabeg, The Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Wendat Confederacy, and all Indigenous peoples, both known and unknown. This territory is subject to Treaty 13 and the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant and is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples from across Turtle Island. Luminato acknowledges our responsibilities to these territorial agreements and to peaceably share and care for the resources of this land while aspiring to embody the treaties through our actions, relationship-building, and our programs.
