Annual Morningside Lights Festival
September 24 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pmFree
Experience the beloved annual procession of awe-inspiring handmade lanterns floating through Morningside Park to Columbia’s Campus.
Since Morningside Lights first set off through the park in 2012, our core mission has been to bring people together in a shared act of artistic expression. We invite you to come together in collectively building, displaying, and witnessing the illumination of the night with large one-of-a-kind handmade lanterns, bringing light and life back to public space.
The theme of the 11th Morningside Lights is centered around how we memorialize. The Reimagined Monument is a timely invitation to the community of makers to rethink the convention of public statuary, creating their own monuments to speak to the current moment, shared past, and hopes for the future.
Meet at clearing between 119-120th Streets on east side / proceed south to exit park at 113th
