Belgrave Lantern Festival reimagined

Each year the Belgrave Lantern Festival is held to ‘light the longest night’ and celebrate the Winter Solstice.

This year’s festival has been ‘reimagined’ as a public art installation in response to current COVID-19 restrictions. For two weeks from June 20th (Winter Solstice) to July 5th, lanterns made by local artists and the community will be showcased throughout the main street of Belgrave.

Everyone in the local community is invited to take part and place their lanterns in their windows, at home, in shops, at work, school, on sidewalks, in front yards and driveways.

The lanterns are a symbol of the resilience, unity and strength of our wonderful Hills community.

Surrounding areas are invited to take part as well – so also keep an eye out in Belgrave, Upwey, Tecoma, Kallista, The Patch, Olinda and Sassafras.

Come light up the Hills townships and celebrate!
