Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square

June 20 - August 18

The year of the dragon soars into summer 2024 as the spectacular Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square brings light and culture with magnificent steel-framed and silk-wrapped giant lighted artistic sculptures. The popular 200-foot-long dragon returns along with never-before-seen giant lantern displays. In addition to the gorgeous light installations, visitors can enjoy live cultural stage performances, see the choreographed fountain light show in the historic Rendell Family Fountain, taste expanded food and drink options including Asian cuisine and American comfort food, drink a toast at the Dragon Beer Garden, and shop for Chinese folk artists’ crafts created on site as well as Festival-themed merchandise. Guests can also play Philly Mini Golf and ride the Parx Liberty Carousel at a discounted rate.

 

The Festival will illuminate Franklin Square at 6th & Race Streets. A portion of the proceeds from the Festival benefits Historic Philadelphia, Inc. for the programming and care of this important public space and its many year-round free events.
