One Million-Light Festival Coming to One Loudoun

LightUP Fest, a culture-rich lights exhibit that combines traditional Chinese lanterns with modern lighting technology, will debut in the Washington Metro area on Nov. 8, 2018 at One Loudoun. Spanning 20 acres of land, the eight-week long exhibition featuring more than one million lights will be one of the largest displays on the East Coast and will marry the old and the new to present a wondrous and delightful experience for all. Attendees to the event will be able to enjoy the displays, as well as partake in entertainment, food, interactive craft activities and much more!

With 77 stunning, differently-themed installations, LightUP Fest promises to be a magical experience for all. The exhibit’s four major themes are Tour of Fantasy, Freedom America, Mysterious East and Magical World, and the dynamic displays combine the latest in lighting technology with artisan-crafted lanterns to showcase the rich heritage, tradition and culture of the world.

In addition to incredible artisan-crafted light show, LightUP Fest will also feature daily performances from acrobats, dancers and musicians. An eclectic array of unique cuisines will also be available for purchase. In addition, the interactive craft and art section will showcase the intricate culture and tradition of craftsmanship with hands-on activities such as sugar puppet making, calligraphy, portrait sketching and rice carving for all age groups to participate in.

The exhibition concept is designed by Zigong Lantern Festival and Trade Group, which has over 30 years of experience producing displays in more than 300 cities in China and over 30 countries worldwide. The Festival was first brought to the U.S. in 2014 in Atlanta and has since exhibited multiple times in Houston and Phoenix.

LightUP Fest will be open Nov. 8, 2018 - Jan. 2, 2019 seven days a week from 5:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. at One Loudoun, 44 Freetown Blvd, Ashburn, Va. 20147. Admission to the event is $29.99 for an adult and $19.99 for kids ages 3 - 12. Children under 3 are FREE. There are also discounted family packages and special rates for students and seniors. The military, police and firefighters with proper identification are welcome to attend for free every Tuesday. For more information, please visit www.thelightupfest.com or email [email protected].

I was thinking today too bad you couldn't extend your dates after all the nights you lost due to the bad weather. I have to say it was really interesting to watch go up and then take my daughter to see it. Now I will watch as this all goes down. Happy New Year.
We're planning on going tonight!
Attended 1/1, This was a fabulous and creative artistic event. We loved attending! 🎆 Thank you! 🙂
The organizer of this show, the woman who brought the show to Loudoun, gave me and my son free tickets to the show. There was an expiration date on the show of November but she told us and the other parents, too, that the expiration date doesn't matter and to tell the ticket taker that she said they don't expire. Tonight just now at the event the ticket taker George (wouldn't give his last name) said no, they are no good. I spoke with George on the phone and he said come back tomorrow after I find the organizer and speak with her. I asked to talk to another person there. He said he was the only one there. He said it is his policy not to take expired tickets. We met the organizer of the show at Paxton Campus Aurora school when we were taking PCM certification class.
My wife and son went a few weeks ago and found it odd that after the $70 or so for admissions they then had to pay for rides....What gives?
