Wouldn’t it be something if the Festival of Lights just “magically” appeared? Well it wouldn’t without our dedicated community and YOU! The light display itself and the fund-raising community events and activites are planned, organized and executed by a dedicated and energetic group of volunteers. With our community growing larger, our need for volunteers is constantly growing, too! We ask you to help in every way possible! You can also earn community service hours, as FOL is a 501c3 non-profit organization.
The Festival of Lights was founded in 1993 as a 501(c)3 charity to raise money to fund the annual holiday lighting along Chandler Boulevard. Fundraising activities are centered on two main events; the Wine & Beer Tasting in the Spring and the “Kick Off Party” in Desert Foothills Park over Thanksgiving weekend. These events have been organized by a very substantial network of volunteers. Since 2000 FOL has partnered with local charities that assist us in our events and receive financial support from those events. We invite you to apply to be one of our 2018 partners.
