Chinese American Museum Lantern Festival Description

On a Saturday in March, all of the festive customs of a Chinese village around the Lunar New Year spills onto the streets of LA at the annual Chinese American Museum Lantern Festival. Held each year at the Chinese American Museum in Los Angeles, the Chinese American Museum Lantern Festival features traditional New Year celebrations full of cultural performances.

The Chinese American Museum Lantern Festival offers everything from elaborate lantern displays to live music performances. Acrobats and lion dancers dazzle audiences and a glow-in-the-dark show tops off the night. Children can take part in origami, calligraphy, face painting, and kite-building. And visitors can try their hand at lantern-making for a special gift to illuminate their homes throughout the year.

Admission to the Chinese American Museum Lantern Festival is free and all ages are welcome to take part in the Lunar New Year traditions. After the festivities, fill up on Chinese flavors at the restaurants nearby in Chinatown.
