We are a Family


A big part of the Lunar New Year, in Asian traditions, is the gathering of family to welcome the new year. LunarFest recognizes that family comes in all shapes and sizes, just like the tigers watching over us this year. The Lantern City project aims to celebrate diversity in a way that lights the path forward; we all call this place home, and we all have a hand in creating the wonderful community called Vancouver. Our differences make us unique, and sharing them through art will only broaden our horizons. Displayed in the heart of Vancouver, these lanterns, designed by various local artists representing their own community, welcome everyone as part of the family.
