* 2016 Festival Has Been Postponed Until A Later Date
Arizona Asian Lantern Festival
A common misconception of this lantern festival is that they are floating lanterns, but due to fire safety and regulations, we do not offer actual floating lanterns as part of our event. Our lanterns are very large (40-60 ft) metal and colorful silk sculptures adored with lights. The highlight of the event is these lit cultural displays, but we offer many other cultural activities to compliment these pieces of art.
