A Taste of Culture and Celebration: Orange County’s FREE Lantern Festival

March 02 through March 03, 2024

To commemorate the end of the Lunar New Year season with music, dance, art making, riddles and food, O.C.’s Lantern Festival is held at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall featuring free performances with local music and dance groups, and the lobby is transformed with floating lanterns. Outside on the Argyros Plaza, community groups also provide educational demonstrations of martial arts, traditional and contemporary music and dance, Chinese YoYo, and more. The event culminates in a thrilling dragon dance on the plaza.
