Stallholders Wanted for 2018 Auckland Lantern Festival


Applications are now open for stallholder sites at the 2018 Auckland Lantern Festival, which takes place from Thursday, 1 – Sunday, 4 March 2018 in the Auckland Domain.

This free and family-friendly festival is one of Auckland’s most popular events and New Zealand’s largest cultural festival, with this year’s event attracting more than 160,000 people. It is the culmination of Chinese New Year festivities in Auckland.

Stalls operate over three evenings, from Friday, 2 – Sunday, 4 March. Stall sites are available for food and craft, or to promote community organisations and businesses.

Thursday, 1 March is Lantern Appreciation Night, with no stalls operating and minimal performances. It is popular with people who prefer smaller crowds or who may be navigating the festival with limited mobility.

From Friday to Sunday nights, the festival features nearly 100 food stalls, ranging from fresh fruit, juices and bubble tea, through noodles, dumplings, barbecue skewers and sticky rice, to pork buns and dim sum.

The deadline for application is Friday, 8 December. To find out more information, go to https://www.aucklandnz.com/lantern-festival/stallholder-site-application.

The Auckland Lantern Festival is delivered by Auckland Tourism, Events & Economic Development (ATEED), on behalf of Auckland Council, in conjunction with founding partner Asia New Zealand Foundation.
