Hindu Lamp Ceremony

Pebble Beach
August 12, 2023
4:00 PM - 7:30 PM

The Conservancy’s 11th annual Hindu Lamp Ceremony returns to Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, August 12!

Dance artist and educator Aeilushi Mistry will bring peace and harmony to the community as she performs the traditional Hindu Aarti ceremony at Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pebble Beach. The Aarti ceremony is traditionally performed each morning and evening along India’s rivers, in order to convey gratitude to mother river, reflect on community, and remember loved ones. Please join us as we decorate palm leaf lamps and release* them along the East River to make prayers and pay our respects to loved ones. Guest artists will also present their work at this event.

This event is free and open to the public, walk-up only.

*Palm leafs are only allowed to be released during this event as instructed, which are then gathered shortly after the ceremony finishes as to not pollute. Brooklyn Bridge Park does not allow the release of any other objects at any time into the water.

For event updates and announcements, subscribe to our email and socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram). Also check our Alerts & Event Updates page.

The Conservancy’s free events and programs are made possible by hundreds of supporters like you. Please consider making a donation to support our work.
