About Us

The Lights Festival™ is an evening like no other. Imagine entering a place of peace, tranquility, and acceptance while enjoying laughs, smiles, and a little bit of dancing with the ones you love most. Never has there been an experience that allows you to throw your inhibitions to the side, and let your dreams fly. Join us for this one night experience of music, food and memories. The time is now to light the fire within.

The Rules

  • Everyone must sign waiver, and agree to all rules and regulations.
  • No outside lanterns will be allowed in the event space.
  • No launching lanterns before it is the correct time.
  • No outside weapons or harmful materials will be allowed in the The Lights Festival™ area.

How the event works

Gates will open at 4:30 PM. At this time you will check-in, and receive your swag bag that will include your lantern. Once checked in, you will want to grab a spot next to one of our tiki torches. We will have plenty of space, but it is first come first serve.

At 6:00 PM the fun begins. We will have dancing, music for the entire family along with some local artists that will make your heart melt. The Lantern launch will change from city to city due to the time it gets dark. Once dark, we will launch the lanterns. We will give instructions on how to launch the lanterns, and will give a countdown to the time for launch.

Giving Back

The Lights Festival™ works with local non-profits in every city we go to as well as national charities that are passionate about the same things we are. The Lights Festival™ loves giving back.


The Lights Festival™ could not exist without the amazing volunteers we meet in every city. All volunteers will receive a shirt and some other awesome swag. Go to your cities event page and click on the link to sign up to volunteer.
