Illuminate the City at Philadelphia at the Chinese Lantern Festival

The Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square returns to Philadelphia’s Historic District with all-new, handcrafted lanterns that illuminate when the sun sets. It’s truly a sight to see. For more than five weeks, the park will glow with new handcrafted lanterns constructed by lantern artisans from China.

The Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival is a celebration of light and culture that features artisans from China and the Philadelphia region. The popular festival welcomed more than 90,000 people from all 50 states and 10 countries to Philly and Franklin Square when it debuted in 2016 for the first time in the Northeast United States.
