Hahndorf Winter Lantern Festival | 23 & 24 Aug 2019

Hahndorf Winter Lantern Festival 2019

The 2019 Hahndorf Winter Lantern festival will involve working with the local community and schools in order to create artful lantern sculptures that will be paraded down the main straight of Hahndorf and displayed in the Hahndorf Academy grounds.

The Hahndorf Academy grounds will be transformed into a colourful and dynamic space, decorated with a large array of lanterns and dotted with local vendor food stalls as well as craft and activities including shadow puppetry, fire puppetry and mural workshops.

The Hahndorf Winter Lantern festival includes a lantern workshop programme, concert, parade and festival.  On Friday 23 August will be the opening night concert: Heysen Ensemble and friends.  Saturday 24 August will showcase the lantern festival and dusk lantern parade.

The HWLF is an initiative of Hills artists and the Hahndorf Academy. Their concert, festival and parade day is a culmination of 7 weeks of workshops with local school students and families. This year will be the fifth winter festival following the Fruhlingsnacht 2015 and the HWLF August 2016 -2018.
