Winter Lantern Festival at Queens County Farm Museum


The Winter Lantern Festival is returning to New York City following three consecutive years of sell-out runs in New York City and Washington D.C., where it welcomed more than 150,000 guests annually. From November 17, Queens County Farm Museum will be transformed into a spectacular world of light featuring more than 1,000 handmade Chinese lanterns and lights creating an unforgettable experience for all.

Guests will enter and wander through a wonderland of light inspired by Chinese myths, legends, and zodiacs. Handmade lanterns of hand-painted silk cloth draped over a frame filled with LED lights will mesmerize guests of all ages as the Fairgrounds transform into a radiant oasis.

Attendees will be amazed as they traverse through dazzling displays of colorful, festive lights and lanterns, including animals from all kingdoms and various other majestic creatures that will shine in the night as guests journey through the Festival. Visitors will also be able to ride illuminated swings, seesaws and other interactive attractions, creating fun photo moments for friends and family, as well as enjoy refreshments on site.

All ages are welcome. Ticket prices start from $17.99 for children and $21.99 for adults.
