Weddings are one of our great community rituals. They remind us of our commitments to each other and the undeniable power of love. After two years of having our collective rituals diminished by the pandemic, Lincoln Center invites you to celebrate love once again. This is a special day for newlyweds, those whose weddings were canceled or diminished, and people who want to recommit their love to their partners and the city we love. Participants are welcome to bring up to two guests.  

Join us on Sunday, July 10 for "Celebrate Love: A (Re)Wedding" at Lincoln Center: a memorable group celebration including a symbolic, multicultural ceremony in Damrosch Park, complete with words of inspiration from Reverend Dr. Jacqui Lewis, Imam Khalid Latif, and Rabbi Matt Green and live musical performances by Mario Cantone, Jerry Dixon, and the cast of Heather Christian’s Oratorio for Living Things

We’re looking for 500 couples to join the celebration!*
