Saturday 26 October 4pm – 9pm
Canberra Nara Peace Park in Lennox Gardens
The Canberra Nara Candle Festival is a celebration of the sister-city relationship between Canberra and Nara, Japan.
Each October the festival brings together a wide variety of Japanese and Australian arts and crafts such as calligraphy, lantern making, origami and ikebana.
As the sun sets, a total of 2,000 candles bathe the park in soft candlelight, forming a rich centrepiece at the event, symbolising the strength and importance of the sister city relationship.
