The Glowfair Festival was incorporated in 2014 by the Bank Street BIA to involve Bank Street’s restaurants, bars, merchants and other Bank Street members in a mission to develop and empower the local community through initiatives with music and the arts. Glowfair’s mandate is to empower local arts groups and engage Canadian artists to produce an immersive experience of music, light and art and aims to provide opportunities to underserved youth while supporting a mission of inclusion and diversity. The organization has grown from a locally focused not-for-profit organization to a producer of an annual tourist destination event. The organization has successfully managed five editions of its signature event.
