Fire, lasers, light, and music make up science’s biggest street party! The dark comes to life with multiple installations, experiences, and performances spread out across Fort Calgary and the River Walk!
Warm up beside Serpent Mother’s 20-foot tall towers of fire, grab a chemical cocktail at the Beakerbar. Bask in the glow of innumerable twinkling lights, discover a sea mammal of magnificent proportion, and join together around the Rings of Reconciliation!
By the way, there is no dress code. Really. This is the time to show the true you – as wild and wacky or simple ans true as you feel in your inner core. Show up! *This event is outside. Please dress for the elements! ADMISSION BY DONATION
