About the Edison Light Festival

Created to honor Thomas Alva Edison, a New England native, the Edison Festival of Light has been around since 1938. Fort Myers became Edison’s beloved winter home and it is important for The Edison Festival of Light, Inc. to preserve Edison and his contributor’s memory as well as continuing the history of the well-known inventor. Because of Fort Myer’s ever-changing population the organization wants to keep his legacy alive with this glorious annual festival.
