Food and Wine

16 Jun 2023 to 18 Jun 2023 Annual Event

Celebrating the longest night of the year, Mansfield Lantern Festival has evolved into one of the most eagerly anticipated annual events in Victoria’s High Country.

Alli Walker of Walker Events has steered this beautiful celebration of the Winter Solstice in Mansfield, at the foot of snow-capped Mt Buller, since 2015. The festival is returning with a fun and packed long weekend program again in June.

Highlights will include a light display, music, performance artists, exhibitions and buzzing market stalls showcasing the amazing, food, wine, craft beer and spirits produced in and around Mansfield.

The weekend celebrations will kick off in spectacular style with a lantern parade and open fires to light up the darkness and ward off the mid-Winter chill.

Our photography workshop returns again – what better place to sharpen your night photography skills?

From tiny beginnings the Mansfield Lantern Festival now regularly attracts more than a thousand festival-goers. Ahead of the event, free lantern-making workshops are available to encourage locals and visitors to get creative and get involved.
