ONE FESTIVAL, MANY NEIGHBOURHOODS
The winter solstice marks the year’s longest, darkest night of the year. The dance of the sun and earth inspired celebrations of the human spirit throughout the ages, and our own Winter Solstice Lantern Festival illuminates the night with lanterns, fire, singing, dancing, music, and storytelling.
This year our own 29th Annual Winter Solstice Lantern Festival continues to illuminate the night with a small-scale celebration at the Roundhouse, where the Labyrinth of Light will be held as well as a Family Lantern Procession to David Lam Park and back. There will be no other indoor performances, activities, nor fire performance this year. However, keep a look out for more info about next year 2023’s 30th Anniversary celebrations.
