Dear Friends,

On April 28, 2020, the Board of Directors of the Northern Lights Lantern Festival Society met and made the decision to cancel the Northern Lights Lantern Festival for 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many new challenges that our community is facing and we believe that cancelling the festival will ensure the safety of everyone involved with the festival.

We look forward to August 2021, to the next Northern Lights Lantern Festival. We look forward to coming together once again to celebrate the diversity and vibrancy of the North End Halifax community.

During this difficult time, please take care of one another. Together, while apart, we will overcome this pandemic.


Shawn Nicholson

Chair of the Board, Northern Lights Lantern Festival Society
