Night of Bright Stars

Registration is now closed for Night of Bright Stars 2023

Night of Bright Stars is a winter memorial event designed to create time and space for communities to honour their grief, and the people in their lives who have died.

This free event features music, reflections, poetry, a slideshow of loved ones’ photos and more. You are also invited to write the name of your person and/or a message to them on a star after you check in. The names/messages will be displayed on stage throughout the course of the memorial ceremony.

A children’s craft room with several activities will be available for kids. While the room will be supervised by volunteers, it is not childcare. Light refreshments will be provided after the ceremony.
