LuminoCity brings NYC a very instagrammable holiday this winter. The immersive experience will offer 16-acres of light & art installations, holiday shopping, food & drink vendors, performances, and more for adults, teens, and families. The light festival opens on Randall’s Island from November 23rd to January 5th.
LuminoCity Festival will join the likes of Rockefeller Center and the Rockettes, as one of New York City’s must-see holiday experiences. Enter a fantastical land and pass through the themed worlds of Winter Fantasy (an arctic wonderland), Wild Adventure (rainforests, jungles, and land before time), and Sweet Dream (holiday cheer, desserts, and daydreams). This visual spectacular will feature over
23 sets of larger-than-life light art displays created by Chinese light artisans who have spent a lifetime perfecting their craft.
Visitors will encounter a towering Christmas tree that’s visible for miles, a magnificent glowing unicorn, an illuminated lollipop land, shining pandas in a bamboo forest, a tasty donut tunnel, and life-size dinosaurs near a roaring volcano. Families, parents & children can follow along with Lumi the magical lightbulb as he takes you on his journey of light and love through the festival. Pick up a passport and collect all of Lumi’s stamps as you move through the festival for a special gift to take home!
In addition to the brilliant visuals and interactive components, holiday shopping and popular NYC food & drink vendors will be available for guests as they enjoy music, dance performances, and more at the festival stage. In the spirit of purveying arts and culture, LuminoCity will host open calls for local artists to perform at the Winter Stage. At the end of the festival, three acts will win monetary prizes through the Winter Stage Awards. The festival hopes to continue this effort by making this an annual program in support of the arts.
LuminoCity Festival will also offer four exciting themed nights throughout their winter run on Randall’s Island; including Cosplay All Day, Hanfu-sion Night, Let it Glow Christmas, and Electric Light Tonight! These will be can’t miss events offering something for everyone.
General Admission tickets will cost $38 at the door and online – with discounts for Students, Seniors, and Children.
