Lights Fest will be stopping in Beaver Dam on Saturday, June 16. You won’t want to miss this life-changing experience, as it makes one of it’s many stops right here in Dodge County! Lights Fest has been a nationwide movement – as attendees leave the event changed, motivated and fulfilled.

This is the second Lights Fest event in Beaver Dam. The 2017 event was well attended, as hundreds of attendees declared their hopes and dreams at the Dodge County Fairgrounds. This year’s event is scheduled to begin around 4:00 pm in the afternoon and lanterns will be released at dusk.

Have a dream, goal or someone that you would like to honor? Attendees will write memorials and declare personal goals on their lanterns. Lanterns will be lit with tiki torches and then sent off into the Beaver Dam skyline. Did you attend last year? Declare a new goal or purpose this year. Each experience and event will be unique for every individual that attends.

Families can expect lifelong memories to be made together at Light Fest. Encourage your children to take a break from your family’s busy schedule and join you for the evening outdoors. Declare your dreams together. Small children will enjoy local entertainment, including magicians, balloon artists and face painting. A sparkler dance party and dance performers are also being scheduled. Older children will likely have dreams of their own to declare – related to their extra-curricular activities and hobbies, education, career and personal development. Help them strive for more at Lights Fest.
