Tickets & info

Plan your visit

The entire LuminoCity team has prioritized health and safety while planning the 2020 festival to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all.

Strict time slots and ticket capacities are enforced

Masks must be worn by all visitors to enter

Mandatory temperature checks to allow entry 

Maintain physical distance throughout the experience

Sanitize your hands regularly throughout the event 

Please do not touch the sculptures

Regular cleaning will be conducted throughout each event day

Following the guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), New York State, and New York City, LuminoCity Festival has implemented the following procedures regarding visitors safety:

  • Arrive 10 minutes prior to your entry time slot. There will be a line at the festival gate entrance for the current time slot ticket holders. The indicated time for each slot is when admissions begin for each slot, not the specific time you must enter. Only those with tickets for the ongoing time slot can enter. 
  • Please expect some wait times as we conduct health screenings for each visitor before entering. We’ll work to ensure everyone can enter and enjoy a safe event! 
  • Remember to dress appropriately as we are an outdoor winter event. We recommend wearing layers, warm jackets, and winter accessories.
  • Be sure to wear comfortable and sturdy boots as the park can get muddy and slippery during cold and snowy weather. We’ve installed flooring paths and will sand them to ensure no ice or snow sticks. 
  • If you are late and miss your time slot window, you can either change your ticket to another time slot during that event day or to a future event day, pending availability.
  • Face coverings MUST be worn upon entering the event and during the entire festival. Coverings may be removed for pictures but must be worn again immediately after.
  • Temperatures will be taken for all visitors. If temperatures exceed 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, admission will not be granted. You will be given instructions on exchanging your tickets for a future event date.  
  • LuminoCity Festival will be running on reduced occupancy. Strict capacities per time slot will be enforced. Once the limit has been reached no more tickets will be sold or admitted during that time slot.
  • Outside food/drink, alcohol, contraband, weapons, and large camera set ups are not allowed at the event. For a full list of prohibited items please see here.
  • Follow the floor stickers that indicate 6ft apart social distancing while waiting on line. Visitors must keep a safe social distance from guests outside their party, at least 6ft apart, throughout the entire festival.
  • Sanitize your hands at any of our sanitizing stations located throughout the event.
  • We ask if you do not feel well prior to entering the event, please leave and seek medical attention immediately. If this is the case, we will work with you regarding rescheduling your ticket. 
  • Parking cannot be reserved in advance and is managed by a third party concessionaire. 
  • Please follow the instructions of LuminoCity staff and security guards.
