Lantern Park is an event resort, Music Festival and the largest desert sky lantern festival in the world. Lantern Park is home to Craig Raceway, a dirt track, with races starting summer 2024. When we’re not holding Lantern releases or races, we host large festivals, and other sports type events.
The past has gone and is unchangeable, no matter how much we may want to, and the future is yet to be written and totally uncertain. The here and now is what matters. Lantern Park is a serene time to let go of the past, the stress of everyday life, and a positive way to escape the chaos of the world while also sending out positive energy for the future.
The magic in letting go of the past, and putting forth the future, comes from the heart, your energy put into it creates the beauty and magic.
Last year was absolutely amazing! Not only was the lantern release the most beautiful thing, but the festival design was like no other. Will definitely attend in 2023.
Lantern Park has a very strict lantern safety and cleanup policy. Details listed below

We track our lanterns flight with 4 Mavic 3T Enterprise Drones, so we know exactly where every lantern flies and lands. We hold a trial run before the event date to test and determine where the lanterns will land. More Information found here

Yes! Our first priority is to hold a safe event for all attendees, which could mean postponing the event to a later date during a storm, or excessively high wind speed. If a postponement required, we will hold the release at the next soonest date available. Your passes will automatically transfer to the next date. With being a black rock desert, we don't see needing a possible reschedule for the event.
Yes! We have a no lantern left behind policy and also track our lanterns flight with drones. All sky lanterns are collected and then recycled and used in other projects.
