Brilliant Baltimore

Brilliant Baltimore is a program that invites businesses, attractions, landmarks and apartment complexes downtown to illuminate their buildings in the official Light City colors during the festival.

This year, Brilliant Baltimore expands to include residential areas through the new Brilliant Baltimore - Community Showcase Program. Through the Community Showcase Program, a community group has the chance to win $2,018 by creating a light display in their neighborhood. Nine honorable mentions will be awarded $1,000 each for funding community projects.
