Fete des Lumieres Georgetown

The Holiday Season will be aglow as four international artists bring their public art displays, using lights as their medium, to Georgetown for a week-long festival  inspired by the world-renowned Fete des Lumieres, or Festival of Lights, in Lyon, France.

Fete des Lumieres Georgetown coincides with the second annual Georgetown Holiday Window Competition, where a variety of neighborhood merchants create holiday-themed window displays using only four different materials. This year’s competition will add lights as a fifth element in honor of the week-long festival.
