Lantern Parade


January 18, 2019
Depart from Veteran’s Park at 6:30 pm


Everyone can be a part of Art After Dark! This illuminated community parade will start and finish at Veteran’s Park and weave throughout the various art installations in downtown Napa as hundreds of people show off their homemade lantern creations. A band and performers will energize the route along the way!

There will be public lantern-making events in the months leading up to the parade, and these events will be posted on the City of Napa social media and websites. If you are interested in hosting such an event, please register your details HERE and we will be in touch to help with promotion and general support.

Are you a business owner, property owner, or business manager located in downtown Napa? If you have window space to spare in your office or storefront, we have gorgeous lanterns already created by New Tech High School students that will serve as advertisements for the parade. Please email Chelsea at to receive your lantern and more details.

The City of Napa is proud to be partnering with New Tech High School for several elements of the Napa Lighted Arts Festival. Students from New Tech have created lantern designs specifically for sharing with the community for the parade. You can download their PDF designs from the "New Tech High School Lantern Design Templates" section of this web page.
