After a very successful first year, The Calgary Zoo is proud to announce the return of ILLUMINASIA, Lantern & Garden Festival Presented by Sinopec Canada. The authentic Chinese lanterns will light up the zoo and set the stage for a unique experience like no other in Calgary. The 2016 festival lanterns will highlight the four seasons, including the four noble plants of the Chinese culture, as well as incorporating zoo and culturally symbolic animals. The Dorothy Harvie Gardens will provide the backdrop through lush mosaic cultures and vegetation tapestries. Visitors will also experience authentic Chinese entertainment and multicultural programming.
Thank you to everyone who experienced ILLUMINASIA in 2015. We were thrilled with the response from our guests and look forward to putting on another great and culturally enriching festival this year.
Money raised through special events such as ILLUMINASIA help the Calgary Zoo further it’s conservation efforts. To anyone who attends these events, thank you for supporting wildlife conservation.
