Those looking to indulge their sweet tooth will be delighted to know there’s an annual festival designed just for you from June 1st through the 3rd in Manhattan’s Bryant Park. This year’s Scooper Bowl New York brings in the nation’s leading companies and craft creameries to a single location, where attendees can sample unlimited ice cream and sorbets to their heart’s content. For many sweets enthusiasts, this is the best food festival NYC has to offer.

Billed as a mega-festival by organizers and fans alike, the Governors Ball Music Festival takes place on Randall’s Island on the Hudson River. Featuring a lineup that includes TOOL, Chance the Rapper, Lorde, Wiz Khalifa, and other well-known and up-and-coming talents, the festival kicks off on June 2nd and lasts all weekend.

Lincoln Center Festival 2017

Already renowned for its captivating performances, the Lincoln Center hosts its annual Lincoln Center Festival to deliver even more entertainment to arts lovers during its nearly month-long event. Starting on July 10th and running through the end of the month, the festival draws on the best talents in nearly every arts category, including film, theater, music and dance.

Panorama Music Festival

When it comes to music festivals, NYC doesn’t hold back on delivering talent. However, music isn’t the only hot ticket item at this year’s Panorama Music Festival, despite featuring acts that include Frank Ocean, Solange, Tame Impala, Alt-J and countless others over its three-day event.

Beyond having an ultra-high definition video screen that wraps around its stage for an immersive concert experience, the festival also combines technology, artistry and design in THE LAB, an experiential (and you could also say, experimental) mobile art studio featuring a massive virtual reality theater.

Whether you’re heading to the festival with a large group, planning a fun date, or looking for a way to avoid New York City traffic, there’s a Luxor Limo vehicle perfectly suited to your needs. Go ahead, have some fun, and leave the driving to us!
