RiSE elevates hope, ignites dreams, and creates moments you will never forget.
The evening begins with live music by talented artists that set the ambiance for you to relax, eat, drink, and be with friends as you prepare for your lantern release. You’ll personalize your lantern with a message, a prayer, a dream or a resolution.
After sunset we will light our lanterns together and release them skyward. Your lantern means something unique to you. But together they give a collective voice to our dreams and challenges in a beautiful display—and one unforgettable evening.
RiSE is both beautiful and environmentally responsible. We have a “Leave It Better Than We Found It” policy.
Our lanterns are specially designed with a short burn and flight time. After the event we retrieve 100% of the lanterns from the surrounding desert as well as any pre-existing litter that we find in the area, and because each lantern is 100% biodegradable, sustainability is something we achieve with every event.
Additionally, we purchase carbon offsets for every vehicle we use in the setup and cleanup of the festival, and we encourage participants to purchase carbon offsets for their travel to and from the festival.
