Winter Solstice Lantern Festival

Event Date: Tuesday, December 21, 2010

The December Solstice, known as the dance of the sun and earth has inspired a celebration of the human spirit expressed through art and music. The Solstice is acknowledged in every part of the world although the effects are different.

For those of us living in the northern hemisphere, the winter solstice marks the shortest day of the year, so what better than to celebrate the elongated night with lanterns, fire, singing, drumming, music and dancing!

This year December 21st marks not only the winter solstice but a lunar eclipse as well! Come celebrate this rare celestial alignment with a glowing constellation of lanterns shining in five Vancouver neighborhoods of East Side, Yaletown, Granville Island, False Creek, and Chinatown. These five little festivals are community-based and reflect the unique nature of each neighbourhood. Intimate and accessible, each invites your participation. Wherever you wind up, it is a chance to feel connected to a community, city, and universe.
