The Conservancy’s 12th annual Hindu Lamp Ceremony returns to Brooklyn Bridge Park. Dance artist and educator Aeilushi Mistry brings 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 a free walk-up event open to all; no advance registration required.

For event updates and announcements, subscribe to our email and socials (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram). Also check our Alerts & Event Updates page. Please note this event is subject to change to weather or other extenuating circumstances.
