1st Annual Lantern Festival

The 1st Annual Lantern Festival will involve a number of FREE coordinated community events for two weeks in midsummer, culminating in a magical evening celebration to light up the night on July 24th, 2021.

July 10 & 17, 2021
Lantern Building Workshops for Kids, Teens & Adults – plus online tutorials accessible anytime

July 24, 2021
All-Day BBQ and Food Truck Festival
Lantern Decorating
Kids’ Parade of Light at our local seniors’ home

Where?
On the evening of July 24th, we will light up the grounds of the Innisfail Historical Village. The IHV will also play host to the day’s activities including lantern decorating, BBQ, and food trucks. We invite Innisfail business owners and neighbours to come forward with your expressions of interest. If you choose to participate, you would create a lantern or light installation that will be showcased in the festival. You will also have the option to sponsor a locally designed and built installation. And don’t worry if you are new to lantern-making. We will be offering several how-to workshops in person and online leading up to the festival. In-person workshops will be held at the Innisfail Historical Village, and online tutorials will be accessible anytime on our event website as of May 14.

    Thank you for providing lantern kits at the Farmers Market. The grandkids had great fun decorating them. What should we do with them now that they’re finished?
    Thank you.
