This neighborhood tradition goes virtual this year, with free kits to make lanterns at home, including video tutorials and virtual workshops. This year’s theme is Harlem Night Song, inspired by the poem of the same name by Langston Hughes.
Reserve your free kit to get everything you need to create your own lantern at home! Kits will be distributed to registrants at a socially-distanced pick-up location outside of Miller Theatre (Broadway at 116th Street) on September 17, 18, and 19.
Once you pick up your kit, we will help facilitate the creation of your lantern: Watch a video tutorial with Processional Arts Workshop, as well as join in virtual workshops with the rest of the community to build your lantern via Zoom.
The number of kits are limited. Kit reservations are first-come, first-served.
