Phil Kline's Unsilent Night

Fri Nov 25, 2022, 7:00 pm

Location: Downtown Cambridge and Cambridge City Hall (50 Dickson Street)

A modern twist on caroling, all ages can enjoy walking through downtown Cambridge with thousands of participants. The music of Phil Kline will be played through speaker stations on the route. To add to the event, download the music for free to your phone and bring your portal speaker! Phil Kline's Unsilent Night is an event held in more than 30 cities around the world. 

The night starts with a countdown in Civic Square in front of City Hall at 7 pm.  Attendees will then begin the processional walk that takes you through the Downtown Cambridge core.   Over 30 light installations will be illuminated along the route for attendees to enjoy and interact with at your leisure.  The route map for 2022 will be posted at a later date. 

Please note, some lighting used may be disruptive to people who are sensitive to light.

Relive the magic with videos from past years:  2016 video and a 2019 video.

Call for artists

We are looking for local artists to showcase light displays for the event.  Installations should feature lights & technology.  The event takes place outside so all installations must be weather resistant (winter weather may consist of rain, snow, high winds and cold temperatures) and must be strong enough to hold up for the duration of the event.  Interested artists are asked to submit the Call for Submissions form by Sun, Oct 2nd, 2022 at 12:00 midnight


Downtown Cambridge has lots of free parking near the event.  Check out the Public Parking in Galt City Centre map for parking options.
