About the Festival
Started in 2018, Knoxville’s festival of lights has become a much-awaited tourist destination for people of all ages.
Who says any light exhibition is only for kids? Teens, adults, and seniors have fallen in love with this yearly event.
Organized by Tianyu Arts & Culture, Inc., the light show is always a big success every year. Tianyu Arts & Culture, Inc. is a subsidiary of Sichuan Tianyu, a global design, and manufacturing company. Located in Zigong, China, Sichuan Tianyu specializes in organizing any Chinese cultural events of all sizes.
Reputed for its ability to combine entertainment and Chinese folk culture, Sichuan Tianyu has hosted countless Chinese light festivals in China and other parts of the world.
Usually, a light festival only takes a few days. But Knoxville’s dragon light is different. It lasts for more than a month, allowing Chinese and people of other origins to know other cultures and relax at the same time.
For more than five weeks of light displays, expect approximately 42 oversized lanterns. Each depicts animals and mythical creatures with a touch of famous landmarks of the city.
The lanterns are made with thousands of light components. Each is assembled by Chinese artisans from Tianyu Arts & Culture, Inc. with precision and perfection to provide the best light display for millions of tourists in Tennessee and other places in the US.
