This years theme was Light & Animals 

How does light effect animals? How does light trigger the migration patterns of birds and other animals? Explore the answers to these questions and more in the immersive, interactive, and educational environment of ILLUMIBRATE 2023: LIGHT & ANIMALS.

Local artists, community members, non-profits, and organizations have spent countless hours creating exhibits and playful creatures of gigantic proportions! Guests will be invited to dive into an aquatic lounge, dine with a pack of wolves, find your inner feline, follow a migration path of birds and butterflies, and much more.
