Host a 2020 Virtual Lotus Festival Watch Party 

2020 offers a chance to find creative ways to celebrate the 27th Annual Lotus Festival with your friends near and far!  Since we can’t be dancing in the streets this year, we’re inviting you to host your very own Lotus Festival at home.

The Virtual Friday and Saturday Showcase Concerts are completely free to stream!

Here are just a few ideas: 

  • Host a Facebook Watch Party and invite your friends.

  • Host a socially distanced watch party in your back yard or on your front porch.

  • Project the 2020 Virtual Lotus Festival onto an outdoor screen or your house.

  • Cast Facebook Live or Youtube on your TV. Click the links to find out how.

  • Host a Zoom dance party. Play the virtual concerts on your computer and share your screen with everyone on the zoom call. Dance with your friends as you watch the concert!

  • Display a Lotus Festival Watch Party poster in your window to advertise your Watch Party. Download your free poster here: WatchPartyPoster2020

We’d love to see your watch party pics and videos! Tag us on social media and use #LotusFest2020!
