The Lights Fest™ | The Denver Ear

Do you feel genuine envy while watching Rapunzel’s lantern festival scenes? Well now you can experience a real lantern festival in Colorado this May!

The Lights Fest™ will be making a stop at Colorado Motor Sports Park, in the Byers area (roughly an hour east of Denver), on Saturday, May 6th, 2017!

The Lights Fest is an experience where thousands of friends and families gather to listen to live music, fill up on food trucks and light up life by sharing personal wishes, dreams and goals. At the perfect moment, everyone ignites their personalized sky lanterns with Tiki torches and lets them take flight. It creates a surreal ambiance, where time slows down as your single flame rises with thousands of others. Come fill the sky with what lights you.

Once you arrive, make your way on over to the “Check-in” tents, where you hand them your signed waiver and show them your receipt. They will then provide you a lantern, swag bag, flashlight and marker. Grab a spot next to one of their Tiki torches by the stage before you go wandering about with your family and friends.

Around twilight, the fun begins. You can experience live entertainment, music for the whole family, dancing, as well as local artists. They will also have kid friendly activities like face painting and bouncy houses.

At some point in the evening you will be informed it’s time to launch your lantern, and you will witness thousands of lanterns fill the sky!

The Lights Fest is a for-profit event, yet works with local non-profits in every city, as well as national charities that they are passionate about.

    I purchased tickets for my family last year for the Sunday event in Dacono. The event was cancelled. I redirected an email saying that all who missed the event would receive information on a new event and tickets. I have called the callings and information line 3 times each! No response. I have emailed 3 times, no response! The ONLY information I was given was to use the tickets from last year because if they haven’t been scanned then they will work. When I told the lady they had been scanned, as we arrived before you all decided to postpone she told me she didn’t know what to tell me. I’m am asking as nicely add I can one last time for a response about which event my family and I will be going to, otherwise I’ll need to file a formal complaint with the BBB. This is incredibly disappointing. Please contact me via phone and NOT the email below.

      Hi Jessica, we are not the organizers of this event. This website is a news/media website that simply informs Denver residents and visitors on upcoming events, restaurants and local entertainment news. I’m sorry we can’t help. Try reaching out to The Lights Fest via their Facebook page messages. That’s how we communicated with them regarding more info on the event. My apologies!
