Pacific Symphony’s annual Lantern Festival is celebrating the Year of the Pig!
The Lantern Festival, which can be traced back 2,000 years, takes place 15 days after the Lunar New Year—on the first full moon night in the lunar calendar—and marks the return of spring, representing the reunion of family.
The act of lighting and appreciating lanterns is a way for people to let go of the burdens of their old selves and express their best wishes for themselves and their families for the future.
Pacific Symphony and South Coast Chinese Cultural Center/Irvine Chinese School join in presenting this free family-friendly festival in cooperation with Segerstrom Center for the Arts.
Commemorate the end of the Lunar New Year celebration with music, dance, art making, riddles and food! Enjoy performances featuring local music and dance groups in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall and activities on the Argyros Plaza.
You’ll have the opportunity to decorate your very own lantern, take in live music, try your hand at solving a riddle, take a Chinese folk dance lesson and more!
Segerstrom Center for the Arts is located at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa California
