For couples who want to share their love with the world at a one-of-a-kind event, your nuptials can’t get more unique than this!

“The Wedding: New York’s Biggest Day” will be held for the third year at the David Geffen Hall & The Dance Floor at Lincoln Center on Saturday, June 22 beginning at 5:00 p.m.


The free mass wedding celebrations will begin at 5 p.m. and go late into the night. The extravagant festivities will honor couples with “a multicultural ceremony with various faith leaders, live musical performances from special guests, and culminates with a joyous party.” The event promotions also promise flowers, henna artists, insta-worthy selfie opportunities, a night of dancing, and appearances from featured artists including The Dance Cartel, Juilliard’s Alumni String Quartet, Street Beat Brass, Isaac Oliver, César Alvarez, Rev. Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Harolyn Blackwell, Joshua Henry, DJ Lina, and more.

This enormous marital celebration began in 2022 as a way to honor couples whose weddings were disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. While health concerns and lingering social-distancing restrictions meant many couples had to downsize, delay, or even cancel their weddings, “New York’s Biggest Day” offered a chance for them to commemorate their love with all the pomp and circumstance they deserve. This year’s version is directed by the Founding Artistic Director of Ars Nova, Jason Eagan, with Music Supervision by Or Matias.

While not a legally binding wedding, the evening is intended to be a celebration of love and happiness for all couples. Couples are encouraged to come and express their love loudly and proudly at this heartwarming event, whether you’re getting married for the first time or renewing vows to your long-time loved one. If you’re someone who just wants to bask in your true love for The Big Apple, you’re welcome to do that too!
