Celebrating China.

The Auckland Lantern Festival is organised by the Auckland Tourism Office in partnership with the Asia New Zealand Foundation. This festival is one of the biggest and most popular cultural events in Auckland and celebrates the dynamic ethnic diversity of the region with thousands of people taking part in the event.

The festival has been part of the Chinese New Year celebrations since the Han Dynasty and is usually held on the 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar which marks the end of the New Year festivities.
