Our Favorite Festivals Around Penn Station, NYC

Comments Off on Our Favorite Festivals Around Penn Station, NYC

Penn Station. At this dynamic hub of New York City and all of its action, there seems to be nothing you can’t find nearby. Thankfully, this is also the case for the autumn, the events and activities don’t stop during this part of the year. So whether you’re a visiting tourist, staying with family for a while, or a curious local, read on for some of our favorite festivals and events during autumn around Penn Station.

Madison Square Garden

Located above Penn Station is one of the largest venues in New York, if not the world, Madison Square Garden! Here, NBA Matches, superstar musicians, A-list comedians, NHL Hockey and UFC Titans face off in this arena of the Big Apple. While these events are quite the spectacle, to Madison Square Garden they’re nothing new, and if you have the means we highly recommend attending any of these blockbuster events right here on top of Penn Station. Just this autumn alone, the Knicks and Rangers are to play their home games while Harry Styles, Meek Mill, Jo Koy, Alejandro Sanz, John Legend, and Enrique Iglesias are all to perform, and that’s only the start of the schedule here at Madison Square Garden. If you’ll be in the Penn Station area during this autumn, take the opportunity to witness an event at one of the most famed venues in the world.


Rose Mansion

The Rose Mansion is something difficult to describe in itself. As taken from their website; “Rose Mansion is an interactive wine tasting adventure that combines a wine bar, an Insta-worthy amusement park, and a science museum into one epic dreampark.” Still confused? It’s a wine-tasting bar with plentiful photo ops and a gorgeous, chill interior. Wine, pink, flowers, and this fashionable, surreal step into the Rose Mansion is a truly unique experience to this area. To put this attraction into words is failing to do it justice, so we recommend following the link below and seeing for yourself. 


Events and Programs at the Museum at Fashion Institute of Technology

The most fashionable museum in New York City is a one-of-a-kind attraction to this neighborhood, where visitors can learn about the intricacies and dialogues of fashion. In line with the exhibits, the Museum at FIT also provides regular online and in-person exhibitions and classes, a great opportunity for visitors and those staying in the area to explore and learn about the world of fashion. From shoes to sneakers to catwalks to insight and in-depth conversions with some of the biggest names in fashion, visitors with an interest in clothing, design, and styles will delight in the variety of programming and inclusive events here at FIT. Aside from these events open to the public, they also have a regularly rotating list of exhibitions and visiting speakers at FIT, so this is worth a revisit throughout the autumn for those staying longer term in the Penn Station area.
