Nurturing a narrative of hope, joy, and transformation.


As ancient people looked to the heavens and celebrated creation, we gather around the skylight to dream about what is possible. No matter your background, you are welcome here, at the Skylight Festival.

Founded in 2015 by people passionate about the arts, faith, and justice, Skylight is a celebratory and creative space where diverse communities connect to explore arts, faith, peace and justice.


If you do not receive our newsletter, our fall newsletter has updates that include changes in our Management Team.  Our February Update has important information about how you may be able to help with Skylight!    Subscribe for our e-mail updates!

Remember that you are the ONE for Skylight, when you see the night sky, look at the infinity of stars and think about what gifts you bring to the world.
