An OzAsia Festival favourite, the much-loved Moon Lantern Parade is upgrading in 2021 from a one-night event to span four-full days of celebrations!

The epic lantern event will take place across four days of the two week long OzAsia Festival that celebrates the best of Asian Australian talent with more than 300 artists performing for crowds.

Learn about the MidAutumn Festival, myths, legends, and celebrations and have the opportunity to get closer to a selection of Moon Lanterns than ever before. Old favourites, including the 40m long Hong Kong Dragon, will be joined by two new lanterns for this year’s event.

Starting at Adelaide Festival Centre Precinct and lighting a path to Pinky Flat, the newly imagined Moon Lantern Trail promises an exciting new experience for families across the festival’s opening weekend. This spectacle will guide audiences through the stories, histories and traditions of Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations from across Asia, with roving performances and puppetry, interactive workshops and live music.

The interactive trail will begin at Adelaide Festival Centre, with attendees walking past an impressive 40m Hong Kong dragon lantern along the Adelaide Oval footbridge before reaching the main attractions over at Pinky Flat in the riverbank precinct.
