Join the Hahndorf community in celebrating wintertime at the annual Winter Lantern Festival. The theme for this year is ‘Literary Arts’, incorporating the use of poetry either with lantern designs or performed publicly.

The fun begins in working with local groups and schools to create artful lantern sculptures. Before sundown, local children will light up the streets parading lanterns through the historic Hahndorf Gardens, accompanied by the town band.

The parade ends at the Hahndorf Academy grounds which will be transformed into a dynamic space, displaying the colourful lanterns and hosting local food and drinks stalls. 

Festivities include craft activities, shadow puppetry, fire displays, and mural workshops, as well as a poetry reading from Gareth Roi Jones and live band performances.
