This blockbuster event will illuminate Franklin Square with 29 all new culturally-inspired lantern sculptures, performances and handcrafted keepsakes by Chinese folk artists, the Dragon Beer Garden, and much more.
Timed tickets are required for entry on Fridays and Saturdays during the Festival. You may enter 15 minutes prior to the time on your ticket or any time after. Last entry is at 10:30 pm. Once inside you may stay to enjoy the festival for as long as you like. Tickets are not valid after the close of the Festival that day.
In addition to marveling at 29 larger-than-life illuminated lanterns, festival attendees will enjoy authentic cultural stage performances, including acrobats, dancers, and the fan-favorite face changer. Enjoy two 30-minute stage performances nightly as part of your admission!
Visitors can dine on Asian cuisine and American favorites, drink a toast at the Dragon Beer Garden, and shop for Chinese folk artists’ crafts created on site…all inside the festival grounds.
