2022 Taiwan Lantern Festival returns to Kaohsiung; it is bigger and more economical.
The national-level Taiwan Lantern Festival has returned to Kaohsiung after 20 years. The 2022 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Kaohsiung will be held in dual venues for the first time, at Love River Bay and Weiwuying. The venues will cover a total area of nearly 100 hectares, which is twice the area of lantern districts over recent years. At the same time, the festival will showcase the most innovative land, sea and air curation and the smartest exhibition technologies. It is expected to create an economic benefit of NT$20 billion and 12 million visitors. The Kaohsiung City Government will budget NT$460 million of its funds, and in light of the lengthy festival, the dual venues and the large area, this expenditure is considerably cost effective.

For the first time, the festival will be held at both the Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts and the Kaohsiung Music Center; both of which are national level venues. In recent years, lantern districts in various counties have ranged from 40 hectares to 50 hectares. Kaohsiung plans to have a one and only dual-venue event, and has selected the two venues, Love River Bay and Weiwuying, which total nearly 100 hectares (66 hectares in Weiwuying and 34 hectares in Asia New Bay Area). This total area measures more than twice that of the lantern districts in other counties.

The series of Light Kaoshiung Century 2021 events held at the end of last year and the beginning of this year have benefitted Kaohsiung considerably in terms of views, broadcasts, crowds, sales and traffic volume. Characterized by a longer duration, a large area and low cost, the 2022 Taiwan Lantern Festival is expected to create NT$20 billion in economic benefits and bring in 12 million visitors.
