Celebrate LIC!

September 20 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

LIC is having a party! Join the Long Island City Partnership (LICP) for a celebration of the LIC community and our 40th anniversary serving this wonderful neighborhood. Come for an evening honoring our partners in LICP’s LIC Arts Connection, showcasing musical talent from our community, enjoying free samples of local food with drinks available for purchase, and that iconic LIC sunset! Free to attend and open to the public!

LICP’s LIC Arts Connection is an innovative, multi-site community arts initiative that builds non-traditional partnerships between public and private landlords, local businesses, employees, students, residents and artists. Its goal is to connect LIC’s community, both physically on foot and socially through access to arts and culture. This initiative is part of LICP’s larger portfolio of work towards connecting LIC’s vibrant mixed-use community.
