The New York State Fairgrounds will be transformed into a magnificent setting! The New York State Chinese Lantern Festival comes to Syracuse, April 14 – June 24, 2017 for the first time in this area.

The Festival will include more than 20 ALL NEW displays. Each display includes hundreds of parts, and thousands of LED lights. 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 more than 30 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. The nearly 200-foot-long dragon is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.

View the craftsmanship, cultural significance and artistic beauty of these displays. Experience artisan crafts and beautiful cultural performances nightly at 6:30 and 8:30pm, weather permitting. Enjoy delicious Chinese (and New York State) food and drinks as well.
