“Ooh”, “ahhh”, eat, drink and shop! This September, Chinatown in Calgary will once again host its stunning Lantern Festival and it’s going to be bigger, better and more beautiful than ever!

Held the day before China’s annual Mid-Autumn celebration, this event will see food trucks, vendors and performers – as well as traditional displays and music.

The very best part? It’s totally FREE to attend and guests are encouraged to bring their own lanterns in participation!
