Auckland Lantern Festival programme
The Lantern Festival is back, celebrating 20 years! Come and enjoy New Zealand’s largest Chinese festival, celebrating the year of the pig, from Thursday 14 – Sunday 17 February 2019, in the Auckland Domain.
Be entertained and dazzled by hundreds of handmade Chinese lanterns, music and dance performances, martial arts demonstrations, traditional Chinese art and craft – there's a range of activities for all ages. Plus, it's free to attend!
If you're all about the lanterns and less about the crowds, be sure to head to the Domain on 14 February for the lantern appreciation night (there will be no stalls, live entertainment or food on this night).
