Participating in Person

Visiting the Gardens

If you would like to attend this year’s Shinnyo Lantern Floating Festival in person, there will be opportunities to visit the gardens of Shinnyo-en Buddhist Centre and participate in lantern floating from 19th - 26th September 2020. This year we can unfortunately not offer access inside our Buddhist Centre, but the gardens will be open together with an opportunity of learning more about Shinnyo Buddhism for those interested. We will provide lantern bases, papers, and some materials for you to decorate your lanterns; however, you may wish to bring your own stationery and/or decoration materials for your lantern, prior to your visit. 

Booking Your Visit

Due to current circumstances and to comfortably limit visitors in the gardens, you will need to book your visit time slot through the booking system. Free parking is also available. You can reserve your visit time by clicking the button above, or through this link here.
