Light The Lighthouse – Saturday, November 27 2021

Join us at sunset, about 4pm for this festive event!

The Montauk Lighthouse is a self-funding not for profit entity, relying solely on our wonderful patrons to support our site, tours and operations. The annual cost of just lighting the Lighthouse for the holiday season is about $50,000. Our first responsibility is to the care and upkeep of “The Light”. We wholeheartedly welcome kind benefactors to step forward and help us ensure that this tradition continues.

Visit us again on Sunday from 11am – 3pm and meet Santa, fun for the whole family!
