Join us and experience the Lake Lanier Lantern festival, where thousands gather to listen to live music, enjoy the treats from a variety of food trucks, and light up the lake by sharing personal wishes, dreams and goals via personalized water lanterns.

At the perfect moment, everyone ignites their lantern then lets it take flight across the lake. Enjoy the surreal ambiance as time slows and your lantern floats away to join thousands of others under the night sky.

Located at the beautiful Lanier Olympic Park.
Lanier Olympic Park

The Lake Lanier Olympic Venue was built for the 1996 Olympic Rowing and Canoe/Kayak Competitions. The original timing tower remains today and is the last remaining venue from the 1996 Olympic Games that continues to be used for its original purpose.

We look forward to seeing you at the Lanier Lantern Festival - a night of unity and community embracing new beginnings.
