Experience the Magic

Lantern Displays

Dragon Lights is coming back to Reno, Nevada with bigger and brighter displays this summer time! This year the festival will shine lights on mini creatures in the garden and bring back the iconic dragon in a completely new form.

As you walk through the gardens, you will find more than a thousand pieces of larger-than-life lantern sculptures that not only glow, but also move and change colors.

Lantern Food Court

The Lantern Food Court is located right across the iconic Chinese Dragon display in the main lawn area. A wide selection of food and drinks are available for purchase here.

Surrounded by lantern displays, visitors can sit down and enjoy a meal or snack in an outdoor environment in the mid-summer nights.

Both local and traveling food vendors will be joining the festival to make sure that the event is not only a feast for your eyes but also for your stomach!

Interactive Playground

Designed with children in mind, the Interactive Playground is for the kids and kids at heart.

Visitors will find ample photo opportunities here, and will have a chance to touch, play with, and even sit on some of the displays!

Lantern Marketplace

Our Lantern Marketplace offers various lantern souvenirs and Asian handicrafts for sale.

Some of the unique handicrafts include aluminum weaving and inner-bottle painting.
