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 craftmanship and artistic beauty. Cultural arts performances will take place each night on the main stage.

Gates open at 6pm; performances at 7pm, 8pm and 9pm nightly.
