In addition to being an amazing family friendly event, the goal of the Jacksonville Lantern Parade is to raise awareness and support Jacksonville area arts education by promoting the purchase of much-needed and innovative art supplies and equipment.
Our corporate sponsors are spearheading the purchase of high-quality equipment such as pottery kilns, 3-D printers and professional easels, specifically earmarked for the Duval County Public School System. Because the event is free, the primary source of funds for the philanthropic mission will be corporate sponsorships.

Help Sponsor the 2019 Jacksonville Lantern Parade
We are actively seeking sponsors to assist in staging the festivities and further the charitable initiative behind the second annual Jacksonville Lantern Parade. The event is unique in Jacksonville and offers a variety of innovative sponsor opportunities. Help us host lantern-making workshops for kids, present the evening’s musical entertainment, serve up the night’s food and drinks, and other ways to celebrate the city’s newest annual artistic tradition.
In November 2018, we were thrilled to deliver two brand new 3-D printers to LaVilla School of the Arts, courtesy of Jax Lantern Parade sponsor Haskell. The printers will be used by students to create all kinds of wonderful projects.
In March 2019, a new pottery kiln arrived at Crystal Springs courtesy of Jax Lantern sponsor VyStar Credit Union. The new kiln arrived in March and will be used by students to make pottery and tiles from clay.
