Winter Solstice Lantern Walk at N.C. Museum of Art

The North Carolina Museum of Art is working in partnership with Hilsborough Arts Council to host a Winter Solstice Lantern Walk, similar to the Solstice Lantern Walk in Hillsborough.

We have put together a huge list of holiday events in the Triangle, including parades, festivals, markets, Santa visits, and more. Check out our growing day by day list of holiday events in the Triangle!

It will take place in the Museum Park on Saturday, December 18th, 2021, from 5 to 7 p.m. The procession will start at 6 p.m. at the Ellipse.

Bring your own homemade lantern, or come at 5 p.m. to make one with the Museum.

Lanterns should be made from white paper or other material and should be lit with only LED lights or white battery-operated string lights. Lanterns can be any size or shape and can incorporate bells, chimes and other embellishments.

The walk is on a paved trail, about 3/4 of a mile long.

This is a free event.

Double-Check Before You Head Out!

We make every effort to make sure that everything on Triangle on the Cheap is 100% accurate.
However, sometimes things change without notice, and it's also possible that we can make a mistake. In addition, we can not guarantee that all events adhere to the safety measures that are necessary at this time, so we encourage you to ask any questions of the organizer, to make your best decision, and to stay safe.
Please verify all deals and events with the venue or organizer before you go.
