I suggest you get there early because last year it opened on November 23, 2019 from 4pm until 10pm. I got there at 350pm and waited for 30 minutes before then started letting us in. This year with timed entry make sure you get there 45 minutes to an hour early.

Luminocity Festival has so much beautiful lights to see but make suree you dress warm. All of the light attractions are outdoors. Wear insulated clothing, warm coats, put on layers of clothing, hats, gloves, pocket warmers, and scarves. because you can definitely be there for 2 hours or more easily.

There are many food trucks where you can get food. You can eat before hand or purchase food at Lumino City Festival. Last year there are about 4 food trucks outside (Nathan’s, bbq, brownie, and mac n cheese truck), and there are about 5 more restaurants under the big tent (fried ice cream, expresso, bao buns, twisted potatoes, cake, and free food for vip area ticket holders. This year there will be no big heated, indooor tent and outdoor seating is always limited. There will be no dino ride this year either.

There are many ways to get there. I chose to drive. You can drive (there is parking for $20 dollars on the premise), uber/lyft stands. You can also bicycle there or walk there if you are in the area. Look here for detailed information about getting there.

Head on out to the Luminocity Festival of Lights to see Lumi’s adventure and the various attractions. You will be dazzled by lights, performances inside of the tent, themed nights (4 themed nights- cosplay, holiday cheer, etc) and regular nights, lots of photo opportunities, and a slide and swings for children. Let Luminocity Festival be the start to a great winter season in NYC. It was something I’ve never seen in NYC and I would definitely recommend it.
