Wildwood Park for the Arts is gearing up for its annual Lanterns Festival April 18-20, the popular springtime festival celebrating cultures the world over. 

Held over three magical evenings, guests are transported to faraway places and times as they stroll through the illuminated pathways of Wildwood's gardens. Each year, Lanterns spotlights different cultural destinations and time periods throughout the 105-acre park, with cultural vistas featuring live entertainment, food, drinks, games and more. Up this year are Argentina, England, China, Nashville and even a "pirate land" and "fairytale forest."

Wildwood’s mission is to provide opportunities for lifelong learning, engage the imagination and celebrate the human spirit through encounters with nature and the arts: visual, performing, literary, horticultural, culinary and more. And Lanterns helps make it all happen.

There will be more details to come in the next few weeks, including operating hours, but tickets to the 2024 Lanterns Festival are available online now. Get them here or purchase tickets at the gate at a slightly higher price.
