The Festival desLanternes

From 1st December 2021 to 1st February 2022, come and visit a fantasy world filled with lanterns that light up the city as soon as night falls.

A magical journey through a great park filled with beautiful lanterns

The Festival des Lanternes will astound you with its 2,500 giant light installations covered in silk, displayed in the open air throughout the Parc du Ritouret in Blagnac, just a stone’s throw from the city centre of Toulouse. Come and enjoy a stroll through the heart of a world of lights and discover some fantastical creatures, relive the great adventure of Aéropostale airlines and wander through Chinese themed scenes.

45 tableaux across an 8 hectare park

A unique and dreamlike show that plunges you into the heart of Chinese legends, such as the magical deer Fuzhu. Stroll through Daguanyuan Garden and its immense 15-metre high temple, admire the Jurassic dinosaurs and take in all the wonderful flora and fauna.

Performers from the Sichuan Opera, who can change their appearance up to 30 times per performance, come to life in these wonderful tableaux.

An ancestral savoir-faire of proven excellence

These monumental light sculptures were created by Chinese craftsmen in the city of Zigong in Sichuan province.
The Chinese lantern festival was created in Zigong during the Tang Dynasty, between the 7th and 10th centuries. The festival was later exported to Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai. And starting this year, it is in Blagnac that you can admire some 45 exceptional tableaux.

From 1st December 2021 to 1st February 2022.
Every evening from 6pm to 11pm.

An Eco-Friendly event
The festival organisers are committed to promoting soft mobility, sorting and recycling waste and choosing easily recyclable materials.
