This year’s Belgrave Lantern Festival puts all of Belgrave on the map, taking festival revellers on a self-led journey across and around the entire township.
‘Activated’ spaces and creative precinct ‘pop ups’ appear in streets, alleyways, arcades, nooks and crannies, featuring art, music, workshops, circus arts, DJ’s, bands, solo artists, food trucks, fire-pits and more.
Last year’s ‘re-imagined’ lantern pivot, which saw shop fronts transformed into luminous lantern exhibits, verified that the hills community is an undaunted, creative and tenacious mob, prepared to do whatever it takes to keep the glow in our streets, and in our hearts, burning bright. This spirit sets the tone and inspiration for 2022.
Belgrave will again become a literal and figurative beacon of light, levity and celebration across the hills this year.
On June 25, The Belgrave Lantern Festival will splash down! So, will there be lantern-making workshops in the lead up? Absolutely. Can I bring my own lantern on the night? 100%.
On the longest night of the year, we invite you to experience and re-experience Belgrave anew. June 25 is a homage to light, the imagination and to the community that illuminates, nourishes and informs how Belgrave lives, works and plays together.
See you there!
