CARDBOARD BEACH is an interactive installation designed by internationally renowned Cuban art collective, Los Carpinteros, to transform the Luminato Festival Hub at David Pecaut Square. CARDBOARD BEACH will envelope the Festival Hub in an immersive faux beachfront, complete with umbrellas, deck chairs, changing booths, and breakwaters, creating the illusion of a sunny oasis at the heart of Toronto’s urban core for the duration of the Festival.

With the construction of CARDBOARD BEACH, Los Carpinteros bring their meticulous craftsmanship and signature whimsical style to Toronto audiences. At the centre of the action over the Luminato Festival’s 10 days, the Festival Hub will come alive as an urban beach party, where music, food and performance intersect—providing festivalgoers with the ultimate escape.
