Labor Day Weekend

From Friday, August 30, 2019 to Monday, September 2, 2019 August 30, 2019 September 2, 2019 LUMA Hotel Times Square

The best way to salute America’s workers is to show them (and yourself) a rocking good time! Go day-glo crazy at a summer music festival, celebrate Caribbean culture at the annual West Indian American Day Carnival, cheer hard at the US Open and make your day memorable by hitting our favorite New York beaches and happy hours.

  • Electric Zoo Festival on Randall’s Island

Go ready to dance away the end of summer at the annual EDM three-day bonanza. Many of the biggest names in electronic music descend upon the park’s four stages.

  • Great North River Tugboat Race & Competition

Cheer on the hardest workers in the harbor, the tugboats, at the 24th  annual race. From your viewing spot on Pier 84, not only can you admire the vessels, but you can also compete in an amateur line-throwing competition.

  • The Riis Park Beach Bazaar

Out of all the fun things to do in summer in NYC, nothing beats raging on one of the best New York beaches—Jacob Riis National Park. Thanks to the Riis Park Beach Bazaar, there’s always something fun to do by the shore, whether it’s a live concert, riveting game of table tennis or a bumping DJ blowout. After all the dancing and jamming, hit the boardwalk and refuel at the concession stand: Bay 9 East. Make sure to peruse the boardwalk’s vendors hawking everything from bathing suits to rad throwbacks from vintage clothes shops and custom sunglasses while you wait for your food to settle.

  • The U.S. Open

The U.S. Open—New York’s most-attended sporting event—is one of the most exciting things to do in Queens. For two weeks, Flushing Meadows­–Corona Park will be the tennis capital of the world during the legendary tournament. New Yorkers bring the party to the National Tennis Center with a celebrity-studded crowd (past famous attendees include Oprah, Alec Baldwin and Jimmy Fallon), while local food trucks bring the yummies, and live musicians performing on the grounds. Whether you're heading to the courts during the day or for a match under the lights, check out how to score autographs from the likes of badass Serena Williams, catch the best action and hobnob with the VIPs.

  • Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit

This city tradition feels fresh every spring when artists following in the footsteps of Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning set up shop in the park. Hundreds of exhibitors, from NYU students to artists who remember the Village as a creative enclave, display their paintings, sculptures, photography, jewelry and woodcraft.
