The North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival is more than a spectacle to behold, it is cultural art to be experienced and understood.

North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival

North Carolina’s premier holiday event returns to Koka Booth Amphitheatre November 19 for its 5th amazing year!

The event will run seven weeks from November 19, 2021, to January 9, 2022, featuring all new Asian lantern displays and enhanced programming!

Koka Booth Amphitheatre is pleased to announce the addition of an educational component to this year’s festival. Aptly named Light Up Your Learning, organizers have created a program for school age children to learn more about the history, heritage, and craft of Chinese lanterns.
