RiSE elevates hope, ignites dreams, and creates moments you will never forget.

The evening begins with live music by handpicked local 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.

Sustainability is creating an event that means just as much for the environment as it does for our participants.

RiSE Festival is a celebration of the life, joys, dreams, hopes, and blessing of each participant. Those are all unique, but something we all share is a love for the planet. That’s why it’s our responsibility to leave no trace—and it’s a responsibility we take seriously.

RiSE Festival has a “Leave No Trace” policy. We’re able to retrieve 100% of the lanterns, 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.
