CNE visitors are in for a treat this month as the biggest indoor lantern festival in the world will be on display for the duration of this year’s 18-day-long fair.

From August 17 to September 3, the CNE will come to light in a brand new way as part of the new spectacular indoor lantern festival.

The captivating festival will feature a series of 17 illuminated sculpture installations, creating a luminous kaleidoscope of colour.

The beautiful lanterns will be themed around legends and myths associated with the ancient Silk Road, creating an exploratory experience for all.

The displays were created by 90 artists using 4,000 metres of synthetic silk, 55 metres of steel, and arrived in eight shipping containers that travelled more than 12,000 km from China to Toronto.

Co-produced by DDM Entertainment and Events Inc., the indoor lantern festival will be located throughout the Enercare Centre’s Hall D for visitors to enjoy every day of the fair.
