10,000 Lights at AX

Help light up the town and support our community at the same time!

Every $1 donation lights 1 bulb at AX, the Arts and Culture Centre of Sussex, right in the heart of downtown.


Whether you light 1 or 100 bulbs, you’ll be helping to raise money for local charities.

AX’s charitable mission is to foster a vibrant and creative hub in our community, and funds raised will go to supporting free and affordable programming for everyone, including youth and seniors’ activities like pottery and painting classes, exhibitions, literary readings, and more.

AX has partnered with the Sussex Sharing Club for the event, and a portion of the proceeds will go to their annual food bank Christmas campaign.

It’s easy to give – you can make your donation online and receive a charitable tax receipt. Donations can also be made at the AX centre, as well as supportive businesses throughout the downtown core.  Just look for the 10,000 Lights at AX campaign donation boxes at: Sobeys, Legacy Lane Fibre Mill, Sussex Ale Works, Piccadilly Coffee Roasters, and Donna L. Floyd, CPA Professional Corp. Thanks to these businesses for helping us out with this campaign!

Join us for the 10,000 Lights at AX lighting ceremony on Dec. 21, 7:00 p.m. at AX, 12 Maple Ave. This is an outdoor event, so dress warmly! We’ll do some carolling, celebrate the winter solstice and the shift towards the light, and help make the season a little brighter, together.

Thanks so much to our sponsors:
