Start & Finish at Veteran’s Park

The Napa Lighted Art Festival Lantern Parade is a family-friendly “art after dark” experience that takes place in downtown Napa. This short half-mile loop starting and finishing at Veterans Park is energized by live music and the featured artist, YOU! We invite community members to participate and create their own unique lanterns to carry on the parade route. Lantern designs are to be inspired by your creativity and they are encouraged to be uplifting and imaginative!

This is a free public event for all ages. Strollers are okay but no bikes allowed.
