The Wellington Lantern Festival is back for its 5th year and bigger, brighter and better than ever before!

14 - 15 February 2020 will see Wellington’s waterfront lit up by spectacular handcrafted lanterns - from Odlins Plaza to Waitangi Park. This event is free to the public and not-for-profit.

The Festival is a celebration of culture and creativity to share with friends and family. There will be DIY lantern making, more than 300 performers showcased over 2 days, delicious globally inspired cuisine from more than 50 of the North Island's best street food stalls, plus eight new custom-made and extravagantly larger-than-life lanterns.

But wait, there’s more! There will be over 3,000 handmade lanterns on display, created by primary-school students from 17 schools across the Wellington region as part of our National Children's Lantern Competition.

Mark your calendars - with over 50,000 people expected to attend the festival, the Wellington Lantern Festival is a must-do this summer.

See you there!
