Lantern Hospitals

Each year in the run up to Lumiere, we take the time to patch up and maintain those lanterns that need a bit of extra TLC. Lantern Hospitals are completely free and are a fun way to contribute to the festival!

Hospitals will run between 7:00pm and 9:00pm at 255 MacKay on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, 28th February
  • Tuesday, 28th March
  • Tuesday, April 25th
  • Tuesday, May 25th
  • Tuesday, June 27th

Lantern Workshops

If you’ve ever wondered where our lanterns come from, then the answer is: you! All of our lanterns are the result of the community’s creative side, and you can join in too, be it with a small glass luminary or a large installation. Let your imagination run wild and stun the crowds at this year’s festival!

Workshop dates will be posted soon.

Community Involvement

There are various ways for your community group to be involved in Lumière. You could set up an information booth with a lighting display or you could adopt one of our lantern sections along the stroll route. We can even show you how to run a lantern workshop! If you can think of any way your community organization could be involved with Lumiere please let us know.
