NYC Winter Lantern Festival 2019

November 22, 2019 @ 5:00 PM – 10:30 PM

After our success last year, the NYC Winter Lantern Festival is back to transform Staten Island’s Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden into a whimsical world of light. There will be over 1,000 lanterns on display, sculpted into magnificent figures of luminescent art. Bring your whole family to revel in eight acres of lights, live cultural shows, interactive exhibits, and more.

For those of you who attended last year’s event, prepare yourself for a completely new, unrecognizable display!
