Light Up Macao 2023, a festival of illumination, makes a return to various venues on the Macao Peninsula, Taipa and Coloane between 2 December 2023 to 25 February 2024, the Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) has announced

The event this year is based on the theme of “Dazzling Wonderland.” It will feature 36 light installations, 20 interactive installations, projections and other displays, found at 34 places in seven districts. 

The locations, which have been chosen to encourage visitors to venture into different parts of Macao, can be found on the Light Up Macao 2023 website

Illuminations are scheduled to be turned on each evening between 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm. 

Projections will meanwhile be shown at the Macao Science Centre and Largo dos Bombeiros in Taipa at intervals of 30 minutes between 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm. There will be another projection at Coloane’s Chapel of St Francis Xavier, although on a more limited schedule. 

The event is timed to coincide with major celebrations including Christmas, Chinese New Year and the Lantern Festival, and features a number of auxiliary activities such as a lucky draw, WeChat interactive game and outreach events.

Light Up Macao has been running for the past seven years. Last year’s iteration was scheduled to run from 3 December to 1 January but received a month-long extension
