Light Festivals 2017 - 2018 Calendar

Light Festivals

The whole world can be set aglow with some of these magnificent light festivals. Perhaps one of the most breathtaking lantern festivals on this earth is the celebration of Loi Krathong and Yi Peng in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Every year, thousands of people come together to celebrate this festival of lights to let go of khom loi (lit lanterns) into the night sky and krathong (decorated floating baskets) into bodies of water. These twinkling orbs of light float away, creating an ethereal atmosphere filled with a warm glow. Taking inspiration from this beautiful Taiwanese festival, RiSE Lantern Festival creates the same magical evening for its participants in the Nevada desert. What sets this festival apart is its emphasis on sustainability. As an environmentally responsible festival, they use 100% biodegradable lanterns and go beyond the principle of "Leave No Trace" and strives to leave the area better than they found it. Soulful and meaningful, these lantern festivals are an emotional catharsis. Light against the darkness has always been a symbol of hope, and there's something truly magical about lanterns illuminating an otherwise dark night sky. Taking this magic, some festivals have even used lights to create extraordinary art installations. The Amsterdam Light Festival brings together local and international artists and architects to contribute to this spectacular light art festival that illuminates the entire city center of Amsterdam. Viewers can marvel at these incredible installations and sculptures on an evening stroll or on a romantic canal cruise along the water route.
