Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square

June 21, 2022 @ 6:00 pm August 7, 2022 @ 11:00 pm

The Dragon is back! Returning for the first time in three years, the spectacular Philadelphia Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square is a celebration of light and culture with magnificent steel-framed and silk-wrapped giant lighted sculptures, created using traditional Chinese methods. The popular 200-foot-long dragon returns along with an all-new walk-through panda bamboo forest, giant whale that swims, mythological creatures, and interactive installations. Visitors will enjoy live cultural performances, a choreographed fountain light show, the Dragon Beer Garden, Asian cuisine, play mini golf, ride the carousel, and more. The 2022 Festival will illuminate Franklin Square at 6th & Race Streets in Historic Philadelphia from June 21 – August 7. A portion of the proceeds from the Festival benefits Historic Philadelphia, Inc., the non-profit that operates and manages Franklin Square, for the programming and care of this important public space and its many year-round free events.
