Hop into the year of the rabbit with Auckland Lantern Festival 2023!
After three years, the popular festival is back and lighting up a brand-new venue. Join us at the Manukau Sports Bowl to welcome the Lunar New Year and celebrate traditional and contemporary Chinese culture.
Hundreds of handmade Chinese lanterns will be illuminated to enjoy, along with cultural music and dance performances, traditional craft demonstrations, and the festival’s famous line-up of food stalls.
A spectacular fireworks display will close out the festival on Sunday, 5 February.
And did we mention it’s free?
The Auckland Lantern Festival is a family-friendly, alcohol-free, and smoke-free event.
