Pittsburgh Zoo Asian Lantern Festival
September 16 @ 6:30 pm - 10:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 6:30 pm on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until October 30, 2021
The Zoo will embark on a bold new adventure in 2021 with the opening of the Asian Lantern Festival at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, an evening experience that will shine a light on conservation, community, and diversity.
Select nights from Saturday, August 14 through Saturday, October 30, the Zoo will illuminate the city with the glow of colossal, wildlife-themed, handcrafted lanterns.
These towering steel and silk sculptures will encompass three connected themes: the Zoo, our global species conservation partnerships, and Asian culture.
As dusk settles in, the lanterns will begin to glow. Revelers will stroll the winding pathways of the Zoo, pausing to admire the beautiful lights, experience awe-inspiring entertainment, and discover the cultural diversity of our region.
The Asian Lantern Festival is a family-friendly nighttime event that requires a separate ticket from Zoo daytime admission.
