Formerly known as the New Mexico Chinese Lantern Festival, The Dragon Lights Festival features 30+ larger-than-life illuminated displays crafted by Chinese artisans. Our team of artisans hail from Zigong, Sichuan, China's cultural capital for the ancient art of lantern-making.

In addition to lanterns, nightly performances, and handicrafts, the event will also offer food and beverages. Our menu includes a variety of Chinese and traditional fair food, as well as assorted beverages.
