Literary Circus

    Lighthouse is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a night of show-stopping acts and memorable feats. We’ll eat, drink, and play games while we look back on the last two decades of literary arts in Colorado. Shop at the auction, paddle around on Ferril Lake, and share in the vision of the years to come.

    Join us for what’s sure to be a swinging, roaring, fire-breathing, cannon-shooting good time.

    The Pavilion at City Park
    Twenty years ago, Lighthouse was founded on the belief that reading and writing can lead to a greater understanding of ourselves and others, encouraging empathy and compassion in our society. All proceeds from the Literary Circus will support our community programs, including free and low-cost writing workshops for veterans, kids and teens, seniors, and people experiencing homelessness. Your support helps us reach more readers and writers, of all levels and backgrounds, in Colorado and beyond.
