THE PHILADELPHIA CHINESE LANTERN FESTIVAL RETURNS TO FRANKLIN SQUARE JUNE 21 – AUGUST 7!
Returning for the first time in three years, the spectacular Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square is a celebration of light and culture with magnificent steel-framed and silk-wrapped giant lighted sculptures, using traditional Chinese methods. The 2022 Festival will illuminate Franklin Square at 6th & Race Streets in Historic Philadelphia from June 21 – August 7, 6-11 pm, with over 30 larger-than-life displays radiant in brilliant colors. Tickets for the Festival are now on sale at www.phillychineselanternfestival.org.
All of the lanterns are new for the 2022 Philadelphia Festival. Highlights feature the return of the popular 200-foot-long dragon, giant Temple of Heaven, walk-through panda bamboo forest and wisteria tunnel, giant whale that swims, mythological creatures, and interactive installations including a kaleidoscope selfie spot. A portion of the proceeds from the Festival benefits Historic Philadelphia, Inc., the non-profit that operates and manages Franklin Square, for the programming and care of this important public space and its many year-round free events.
