The New York State Chinese Lantern Festival returns to Syracuse with all-new, handcrafted lanterns that illuminate when the sun sets. From a three-foot baby panda in Panda World to a three-story Chinese palace pagoda, 1,000 sculptural components will be created on-site by artists from China. Welded metal frames covered in fabric will emerge as flowers, peacocks, cranes, butterflies, archways. The sculptures are LED-lit-from-within lanterns. View the craftsmanship, cultural significance and artistic beauty of these displays. Experience beautiful cultural performances and artisan crafts.  Located at the New York State Fairgrounds in the State Park at the Fair and in the International Pavilion, the festival features two performances daily with Chinese acrobats, face-changers, jugglers, contortionists and dancers.  Enjoy local and international food and drink sold by a variety of vendors. Watch as artisans create hand crafted jewelry, bottle painting, paper lanterns, toys and more – the perfect souvenir of your evening at the Lantern Festival.
