Lanterns in the Garden is all about INCLUSIVE cultural celebration. As a non-profit organization, we strive to bring all Vancouverites happiness, joy and warmth, while showcasing the artistic, celebrative and festive elements of cultural talents and Chinese Lantern Festival!

Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden has partnered with the Lasting Art and Cultural Heritage Society to bring visitors Lanterns in the Garden (yuánxiāo jié) that marks the last day of the Lunar New Year celebration.

These lantern displays showcase various Chinese legends, making Lanterns in the Garden both an entertaining and educational celebration fit for all ages. The lineup of cultural activities, such as the classic game of lantern riddles and the quick-comfort food market, adds to the festive spirit of the lantern festival, sending visitors off with well wishes in the Lunar New Year.
