Winter Solstice Lantern Festival
Sunday December 21
The dance of the sun and earth has inspired celebrations of the human spirit, expressed through art and music, throughout the ages. Honouring many cultural traditions, the annual Winter Solstice Lantern Festival illuminates the longest night of the year with lanterns, fire, singing, drumming, music and dancing!
Come celebrate this warm and festive community event with a glowing constellation of lanterns shining in four Vancouver neighbourhoods.
Wherever you wind up, we hope you feel connected to your community and to the universal spirit of celebration!

Don’t be left lantern-less! Artists from the Secret Lantern Society will help you make your own beautiful lantern. All basic materials are provided and participants are encouraged to bring pressed leaves and flowers or other decorative elements. Price is per lantern – parent & child can create one lantern together. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
