Come and take part in the Mansfield Lantern Festival!
The Mansfield Lantern Festival is a family friendly community festival held on the Saturday closest to the longest night of the year – the Winter Solstice. Celebrating winter, community, family and fun!
Come along on Saturday – Saturday 17th June 2017 – for a fun and family night out. This year we have some exciting new partnerships – which will be announced very soon. Festivities will begin at 3pm and our parade will kick off at 5.30pm (and anyone with a lantern can take part). There’ll be food, wine, craft and music!
The festival celebrates community and art with arts, crafts, workshops,a parade, music and more. Have a look at our gallery to see some images from our inaugural festival in June 2015 and 2016.
Anyone can come along to the festival – in fact the more the merrier! For more information make sure that you sign up to our newsletter.
We look forward to holding some workshops to assist YOU to make your own lantern for the parade in 2017. For more information about the WHERE and the WHEN – have a look at our workshop page.
If you would like to make your own lantern but need a little inspiration we have some ideas on our DIY page. Come along and join in the fun at the Mansfield Lantern Festival on Saturday 17th June 2017.
