Lanternenfest | Kangaroo Point

8 June @ 3:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Head along to a traditional German Laternenfest on Saturday 8 June 2024 at Kangaroo Point, and help raise funds for the Brisbane German Language School!
Laternenfest will include live German music, lantern making competitions (for both young and young at heart), prizes, raffles, entertainment and more. It’s a fantastic family afternoon/evening outing celebrating all things German including great food like Bratwurst, Pretzels and Gluhwein. After the sun has set, put those newly made lanterns to use with the famous lantern parade. 

Need to know: There are a limited number of tickets available. Don’t miss out! 

Parking is limited so it’s best to plan your journey using public transport (City Cat and or bus is ideal). Bis dann!
