About Illuminate Maple Ridge

Formerly known as Glow Maple Ridge, Illuminate Maple Ridge represents an evolved iteration of our community holiday experience. Illuminate fosters engagement with all the wonderful local businesses and inspires both visitors and residents to explore the abundant offerings of Maple Ridge. This community initiative will feature experiences like:

  • Community festivals
  • Arts center programs
  • Sporting events
  • Neighbourhood light displays

NEW! At the heart of downtown and for the first time ever, Illuminate will transform the six-storey City Hall office tower with string lights, floodlights, and vibrant colour displays.

More information about the activities will be released later this year.

We're pleased to introduce the Festive Business Small Grants program, available for local businesses as part of Illuminate! With these grants, valued at $1,000 each, we aim to empower businesses striving to amplify their presence by adorning their storefronts with enchanting displays. 

Illuminate Maple Ridge is more than an event; it’s a shared experience, and a celebration of our vibrant community. This collaborative effort aims not only to enhance visibility of your business during the busy, holiday season, but also to create an atmosphere of cheer for our community.
