Back For 2022 – The Candlelit Stroll Through Downtown Burlington

Fantastic news! The Candlelit Stroll through Downtown Burlington is back for 2022 and we have all the details!

What Is The Candlelit Stroll?

The Candlelit Stroll takes place in Downtown Burlington and has always been one of my absolute favourite events of the season. It is festive and cheery and brings the whole community together for a family-friendly gathering.

Gather at Civic Square, just outside City Hall at 6 PM to pick up your candles (or glow sticks) and celebrate with the community as the tree of Hope is lit for the season. From seven till 9 PM stroll through Burlington’s downtown on a self-lead tour complete with a whole host of FREE activities for all ages

  • Enjoy the beautiful lights along the Promenade West.
  • Welcome the spirit of the season with your family as you take in a holiday movie at Centro.

  • Indulge in some winter treats! Warm up with delicious hot chocolate from La Creme de la Creme Creamery Inc and delicious fare from The WORKS.
  • Capture magical holiday memories with a complimentary photo at the studio of designer Joseph Tassoni.
