New Festival Location For Long Island, NY!

To our dear friends, in light of recent discussions with the local Long Island government and communities, we have decided to move the NY location of the 2021 LuminoCity Festival.

Out of respect for our local communities’ wishes, the festival will now be held at the beautiful Whitney Pond Park in Manhasset (7 Community Dr E, Manhasset, NY 11030), which is thankfully only 10 minutes from the original location at Clark Botanic Garden! While we are saddened to have to announce this news so close to our November opening, we at LuminoCity believe your safety and the happiness of our communities are of the utmost importance.

Luckily, with the help of the local Long Island government, the LuminoCity Festival lights will still shine in Long Island in 2021, and Lumi and his friends can’t wait to see everyone at the lovely Whitney Pond Park! We are confident that festivalgoers will still experience the joy and inspiration that LuminoCity is famous for.
