Cathedral Festival of Lights

December 15, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - December 19, 2021 @ 10:00 pm

The Cathedral Heritage Foundation brings back the Cathedral Festival of Lights event with a major expansion. The CHF presents both an indoor and outdoor Christmas light shows Starry Night and The Beginning, along with an outdoor Christmas market, at the Cathedral of Saint Paul, 239 Selby Ave., Saint Paul. The light shows run Wednesday, Dec. 15 through Sunday. Dec. 19; the Christmas Market is slated for Dec. 16-18. Tickets for the indoor event, Starry Night, may be purchased now at eventbrite.com. The outdoor show is free and presented by the Cathedral Heritage Foundation and sponsors as a gift to the community.

Starry Night, produced by the award-winning Luxmuralis from the United Kingdom, will transform the Cathedral’s interior into a fully immersive 360-degree light and sound experience. Guests will be allowed to find their own seats and perspective, as the show surrounds them in a calming sea of stars accompanied by a custom musical score. Guests are welcome to view the full projection multiple times before exiting the Cathedral. Outside, the cinematic projection of The Beginning uses the Cathedral’s 150-foot-tall eastern façade as the backdrop to tell the Christmas Story of wonderment and joy. The 12-minute show will be run on a continual loop during each night’s operating hours.
