About Us


Electric Nights Festivals is an experienced and innovative special events company specializing in festivals, cultural and visual attractions, and large-scale entertainment events across North America, South America and Europe. We are the largest LED lantern manufacturer in the world and are backed by a talented team of professional designers and engineers. 

Our team is unique because it draws from a wide range of skills across a broad entertainment and marketing spectrum.  We bring years of expertise in event production and delivery with host venues that range from major theme parks to zoos, parks, museums and botanical gardens, among other sites. We work closely with site operations and marketing teams, and have our own operations and marketing teams to deliver unforgettable experiences and results as well. 

About Us

We are renowned for producing spectacular, unforgettable events that both leave an ever-lasting impression on audiences as well as produce strong economic results for host venues. Our shows attract nearly two million visitors annually and produce proven, strong economic results 

Our work is a modern interpretation of the famous Chinese Lantern Festivals that have occurred in China for millennia. We’ve taken the artisanship of those impressive cultural lanterns and applied them to modern stories and designs that appeal to broader North American, South American and European audiences. 

We are the world’s largest producer of electric light festivals, producing more than 50 shows annually in more than 20 different countries. The Zigong Lantern Group and DDM Entertainment and Events have evolved into a merger that harnesses the benefits of top industry talent from both east and west. We combine the biggest and highest quality lantern company in China with DDM’s experience as western operators, meaning that our shows are authentic and of artisan-level quality, with operations and management practices that meet western standards.
