Cue the lights because the region’s most stunning holiday tradition is back! Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre will once again welcome the North Carolina Chinese Lantern Festival when it returns this winter for an 8th year.

Chinese artisans are already busy crafting more than 40 all new displays, each one comprised of hundreds of parts, and thousands of LED lights. These larger-than-life lanterns will captivate visitors at every turn with amazing craftsmanship and artistic beauty. Cultural arts performances will take place each night on the main stage.

“Cary’s signature festival of light returns with new lanterns, performances, and unique experiences,” says William Lewis, Cary’s Cultural Arts Manager. “Last year’s festival drew guests from all 100 counties in North Carolina, plus visitors from 50 U.S. states and territories. Cary’s Koka Booth Amphitheatre is proud to host this treasured destination event.”
