The Water Lantern Festival Lights Up Piedmont Triad

The highly anticipated Water Lantern Festival returns to Lake Reidsville on September 10, 2022. This is the third year Lake Reidsville has hosted the festival and this year is primed to be the best yet.

The 2022 Water Lantern Festival Tour is an incredible experience where you, your friends, and your family will create a magical memory together for life. This festival brings people together from all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life, for a magical night of music, food, and the most awe-inspiring sight as floating lanterns light up the water.

This is a time when people can come together to share positive energy, spread love and kindness, and find comfort and strength. It’s a great opportunity to reflect on your life, share your dreams, and connect with your friends and family. Each participant is given a lantern and a marker upon arrival at the festival. The marker allows you to write a message on your lantern before you send it into the water. Your message can be anything that inspires you! You can feel a real sense of peace and awe when the lanterns begin to float out into the water - it’s an inspiring sight!

“This Water Lantern Festival provides a way to share your hopes, dreams, and aspirations,” said Nate S., Event Director. “It’s a night that you will never forget.”

Water Lantern Festival is more than just a moment after sundown to release your lantern, it’s a family-friendly event all evening. We will have activities, food trucks, live music and giveaways beginning at 5:00 PM till sundown when we begin to release the lanterns on the water. If you are a business owner and are looking to get involved we’d love to have you! Please feel free to email for information on sponsor and vendor packages.

Please Note:

The Water Lantern Festival team of event production experts has produced hundreds of events throughout the world with a combined total of over 1,000,000 attendees! The team consistently hosts events that receive an A+ rating with the BBB. Safety is our top priority for all participants.

These lanterns have battery operated lights in them and the company pulls all of them back out of the water when it is over. They are contained to a certain area so they can bring back in with a huge net.
