Lantern Creation Station

Napa Lantern Parade & Lantern Creation Station

Napa Lantern Parade

On January 18, 2019, 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! The parade kicks off from Veteran's Park at 6:30 PM.

When: Friday, January 18, 2019 at 6:30 PM
Where: Veteran's Park

Lantern Creation Station

In preparation and celebration of the first Napa Lantern Parade, people of all ages are invited to make a custom lantern to show off later that night! Art supplies and lantern lights will be provided, as well as instructions, ideas and inspirations. Artsy helpers will be on site to assist lantern-makers!

When: Friday, January 8, 2019, from 12 PM - 5:30 PM
Where: Veteran's Park

As an exciting new feature of the Napa Lighted Arts Festival, a parade of participants will show off their handmade lanterns while weaving throughout downtown Napa on a short loop, energized by live music and other lighted art installations along the way. The result will be a magical and fun “art after dark” experience for viewers and participants alike. 
In line with the Lighted Arts Festival’s 2019 theme of BEYOND, we invite lantern designs to be inspired by the literal or conceptual interpretation of the word. As this is a family-friendly event, art is encouraged to be generally uplifting, inspiring, imaginative and positive.

Feel free to bring your own art supplies should you feel inspired to do so. If staying for the Lantern Parade later that evening, remember to bring layers to stay warm and comfortable shoes!

Visit the Napa Lantern Parade Facebook Event to learn more. You can also check out Do Napa's Lantern Parade page or the City of Napa's Lantern Parade page for more info.
