Light up the night with us. Bring a lantern and add to the glow in celebration of the Crooked River Lighthouse's 123rd birthday! Shipwreck tales & local lore, glowing lanterns, music, dance and night time tower climbs bring magic & history together!

Lantern Fest, a unique festival celebrating the birthday of the Crooked River Lighthouse in Carrabelle, Florida, will be making a big change this year and subsequent years. Based on input from the community and our visitors and in order to avoid scheduling conflicts with other community fall events, the Carrabelle Lighthouse Association has decided to PERMANENTLY MOVE Lantern Fest to the 3RD WEEKEND in OCTOBER.

Mark you calendars now. Lantern Fest 2018 will be Saturday, October 20th from 6-10 pm at Crooked River Lighthouse, 1975 Highway 98 West, Carrabelle Beach, FL. Planning for this amazing event has already begun and some of the ancient craft demonstrators are already confirmed. This remarkable festival, best known for its breathtaking display of over a hundred colorful and handmade lanterns, lights up the night with magic and history at the 1895 maritime landmark. This evening of music, dance, night tower climbs, glowing lanterns and yummy food is truly a fitting way to honor of the 123rd birthday of the Crooked River Lighthouse!

So save the date, Saturday, October 20 from 6-10 PM, and start making lanterns now or attend one of our Lantern Making Workshops offered later in the year. s !  For more information, please visit our Facebook page,  or contact (850) 697-2732 or Funded in part by the Franklin County Tourist Development Council.
