Victoria Park Lantern Festival

The Steering Committee

The Lantern Festival Steering Committee has a few anchor members who would love to see more people bring their ideas and energy to the planning and running of the festival and the programming running up to the festival. If you are interested in getting involved in some aspect, please contact us at [email protected].

During the Off Season (Early August to Early May):

The best way to get in touch with the Lantern Festival is to send us an email via our contact form, or to send us an email directly to [email protected].

Members of the steering committee will do their best to get back to you in a reasonable amount for time.

During the Active Season (Early May to Early August):

During the active season, our response time is much quicker as we have a Lantern Festival Coordinator who will respond promptly to incoming email inquiries ([email protected]).

During the active season we also have a phone. We can be reached at the Pool House at 709-576-1545. If we don’t pick up, please indicate that you are leaving a message for the Lantern Festival coordinator.

Finding the Pool House

Since there is no longer a pool in the ground next to it, many people find it difficult to locate the structure we call the Pool House. The Pool House is located on the east side of Victoria Park right at the end of Angel Place. Angel Place is the first left off Alexander Street if you turn up Alexander Street from Water Street (west). The main entrance is located on the side of the pool house that opens onto the park (more specifically, onto a field); this side is covered in bright graffiti art.

Please note that there is NO PARKING on Angel Place. If you are coming by car, you must park in the Victoria Park parking lot off Sudbury Street and walk down the path leading to the children’s playground. The Pool House is near the playground.
