The Larger-Than-Life Chinese Lantern Festival

An exclusive new attraction at the Washington State Fair Events Center
Open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, Sept. 27 - Oct. 13

Alert: Luminasia will be closed Sunday, Sept. 29 due to heavy rain.

Luminasia has been such a hit, we've decided to extend it's stay through mid-October. Don't miss this once in a lifetime attraction! Luminasia has taken the traditional form of Chinese lantern making and modernized it into the 21st Century. Conceived and produced by International Special Attractions, it is an incomparable display of glowing light and color, combining high-tech material and state-of-the art lighting and production techniques.

The result is a beautiful, fun, immersive, and larger-than-life "East meets West" exhibition. Covering over two acres of outdoor space, this marvelous walk-through exhibit showcases Washington state landmarks combined with traditional Chinese icons, all glowing from within. Over 50,000 state-of-the-art bulbs are used to illuminate this fascinating spectacle.
