Why LITE Fest began
Lets LITE up the Riverfront!!!
The Detroit RiverFront Conservancy is thrilled to host the 2018 Lead Innovate Thrive Elevate Festival (LITE Fest) in partnership with Ford Motor Company Fund. LITE Fest is a student event that celebrates America’s Independence Day in Detroit through an interactive, fun and educational Summer experience outside the classroom. This event honors a select group of ALL STAR students to enjoy an exclusive firework viewing experience that celebrates their overall achievements during the 2017-2018 school year. Students are nominated by their school to participate in this special event. LITE Fest is the only private student event on the Detroit Riverfront.
