Luminara Lantern Festival


Luminara, our large scale lantern festival that was held in Beacon Hill Park each July from 2000 to 2009, is no longer running. Please see our Luminara History page for more information.

Due to major funding losses in 2010, we canceled the festival, and looked for ways to sustainably continue with the essence of the Luminara tradition.

In 2010, Luminara developed into a community event in three different neighbourhoods, James Bay, Fairfield and North Park.

In 2011, along with partnerships with Intrepid Theatre and the Esquimalt Lantern Festival, we continued our tradition of community illumination with the Moon Festival at Gordon Head in partnership with Saanich Parks & Recreation. 

In 2012 and 2013 we have continued with the Moon Festival at Gordon Head in partnership with Saanich Parks & Recreation, for updates please check our Moon Festival page.
