    Celebrating the longest night of the year, Mansfield Lantern Festival has evolved into one of the most eagerly anticipated annual events in Victoria’s High Country.

    Alli Walker of Walker Events has steered this beautiful celebration of the Winter Solstice in Mansfield, at the foot of snow-capped Mt Buller, since 2015. The festival is returning with a fun and packed long weekend program from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 June 2022.

    Highlights will include a neon light display, live music, performance artists, exhibitions and buzzing market stalls showcasing the amazing, food, wine, craft beer and spirits produced in and around Mansfield.

    The weekend celebrations will kick off in spectacular style with a lantern parade and open fires to light up the darkness and ward off the mid-Winter chill.

    A photography workshop is new for 2022 – what better place to sharpen your night photography skills?

    From tiny beginnings the Mansfield Lantern Festival now regularly attracts more than a thousand festival-goers. Ahead of the event, free lantern-making workshops are available to encourage locals and visitors to get creative and get involved.
