The Feast of Lanterns theme “A New Vision” honors what the Feast has been and illuminates all the amazing community service that members of the Royal Court complete during their reign.
The Board of Directors invites you to come and celebrate with the last hometown, Butterfly Town USA.

Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Feast of Lanterns Board of Directors has come to the regrettable decision to postpone many of our major events this summer, including Feast Day at Lovers Point. We simply do not believe the choice to gather as a large community this summer is a viable one. Instead we hope to realize our events sometime later in 2020 (or 2021). The 2020 Royal Court will continue its virtual outreach to the community via our Facebook and Instagram pages and on our calendar page. Each member of the 2020 Royal Court is guaranteed a place on the 2021 Royal Court, and we will also open the application process to other youth next year.
We encourage everyone to hang lanterns in June and July: #PGStillShining. Additionally, keep an eye out for smaller Feast of Lanterns events as social distancing guidelines permit. We have a fabulous Royal Court and an exciting new story to share, “The Legend of Pacific Grove.” We value immensely the community’s support of the Feast of Lanterns, Pacific Grove’s oldest tradition. As you await news of coming events, be sure to mark your calendars for Feast Day 2021: July 31, 2021.
The big day is July 31, 2021 at Lovers Point Park.
The public is invited to dress in costumes that represent your culture or family heritage.
The Feast of Lanterns Pageant will be the official closing ceremony as it was for the first Chautauqua Assembly in 1905.
