Asian Lantern Festival lights up the Metroparks Zoo

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo brings the beauty of Asian culture to light in the spectacular Asian Lantern Festival

The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is host to the Asian Lantern Festival, a 5-week long event, beginning this weekend, and running until August 19th. Over 40 illuminated sculptural lanterns are on display, from high-towering jellyfish to massive floral blooms, to a lake-filling dragon.

The Festival is a separately ticketed event from the zoo’s daily operation and goes from 6:30 PM until 10:00 PM, Thursday through Sunday (except for August 30th). You can find all the information at the zoo’s event page.


Asian Lantern Festival is a limited engagement – extended through Monday, September 3
