Tartu in Light (TAVA 2016) was the first architectural lighting design and light art festival in Tartu, Estonia. The festival featured site-specific outdoor installations that highlighted Tartu’s forgotten spaces, history, and citizens, showcasing the spatial relationships between places and non-places. The event returned in 2018 with a rich program including outdoor exhibitions, a lighting design conference, a light fair, and workshops in architectural lighting design and video mapping with professionals. An indoor exhibition opened on 24 October and lasted for a month. The 2021 edition took place from 27-30 October. As of now, no future editions are planned.

Dates of the previous/upcoming edition: 31 October – 02 November 2024 (last edition 2021)
