Fall Lantern Walk

300+ Cities, Thousands of families

Tinkergarten Fall Lantern Walk

What is it?

Our Tinkergarten Fall Lantern Walk is open to all and is designed to help all of us see the beauty in the darkness that comes with the end of Daylight Saving time (aka "Fall back"). This will be the fifth year that Tinkergarten has held Fall Lantern Walks. For thousands of families across the country, this event has become a magical, annual tradition.

How to participate

Families will gather before dusk, sing songs, light lanterns and enjoy an outdoor walk in the park. Simple and lovely. This event is FREE and open to all who register. Most of the events are taking place on Sunday, November 5, but we do have a few that are happening on other dates. Double check your event’s day and time. It’s confusing enough when we “fall back,” we don’t want anyone left in the dark.

If you are enrolled in the Fall Tinkergarten season, you will make a lantern for this event as part of class. If not, please bring a lantern or lanterns to the event.

Visit our classes page to find a Lantern Walk in your community. If we don’t have an organized walk happening in your area, you and your friends and family can make your own lantern walk happen. Here’s the guide!
