Luminato and its artistic and venue partners are committed to being a festival that is accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities. Care and consideration has been taken in planning our festival to ensure, wherever possible, that:
- Our programs and services are provided in a manner that respects the dignity and independence of people with disabilities
- Our programs and services for people with disabilities and others are integrated, allowing all an equal opportunity to participate in and benefit from the festival
We have various venues throughout Toronto and each venue has different accessibility features. Advance information about each venue’s accessibility features is available here to help you plan your visit to the festival.
How to order tickets
You can purchase Luminato tickets through our website or call the Luminato Box Office at 416 368 3100 x254. We accept TTY calls from all Relay Service Providers.
If you require spaces for mobility devices, such as a wheelchair or scooter, or a service animal or a seat for a support person, please call our box office to book your tickets and advise the ticket agent at the time of purchase. For most ticketed events, our venues have designated spaces to accommodate persons using mobility devices, with a service animal or accompanied by a support person.
Be sure to order your tickets early as there are a limited number of accessible seats in each venue.
