Update: September 17, 2020

Gillette Shows has agreed to bring their very successful Food Fest to Myers Park! We are very proud to bring you this event. While we know it won't replace carnival rides and shows, it will be a lot of fun to at least have delicious carnival food, experience the sights, sounds and smells, of an amusement park right here at Myers Park! Please join us for a completely COVID safe experience. Drive up, grab a menu, someone will arrive at your vehicle to take your order and bring it back too! After you get your food, feel free to grab a picnic table and enjoy your treats!

We hope that you will join us for this wonderful and new experience in your hometown park. We will see you on October 2, 3 and 4!

Update: September 3, 2020

Back in early July, the Lansing Events Committee had the unfortunate position of having to announce the cancellation of the Lansing Community Celebration 2020. Phase 4, which we were in at the time, included high-risk activities, such as: carnivals, concerts, performing arts, theater arts, water parks and the like, the reason being, they will go over the gathering limit of 50 people, which as of today, is still the case. If Phase 4 were to completely open in Tompkins County, the LEC would not have had ample time to organize the parade, book the acts, prepare the carnival, and have enough membership to make sure the proper PPE were being followed.

Even though we are still in the planning stages of businesses and activities still opening, we are excited to announce that we are going to bring a Carnival Food Fest to Myers Park on October 2, 3, and 4th! Gillette Shows will be bringing their food trucks to Myers Park and setting up to serve in a drive through fashion, bringing all of your favorite's, fried dough, hot sausage, cotton candy and lots more! All social distancing, and mask wearing will be used.

More details will be coming as soon as we have all the details worked out. Please check back here in the coming weeks and check our facebook page!

We would like to thank everyone for their support of our past events and your support of our future celebrations. Please keep us on your calendars for a full carnival in 2021!


The Lansing Events Committee is made up of the former members of the Lansing Bicentennial Committee that organized the 2017 event. It was such a success, that we were asked to regroup, from that, the new, 100% volunteer, 501 C3, non-profit, the Lansing Events Committee was formed. We are made up of a set of officers and combined we are a Board of Directors. Our group is working hard to bring you family friendly events that foster community involvement and spirit. Our next project is going to be the return of Lansing Days. We need your support! Any help in the way of volunteering or donations is truly appreciated. Our committee is always looking for Lansing residents that are interested in wholesome, fun family events, to be a part of our small group. We meet the second Wednesday of each month. The meetings last about an hour. We host chicken BBQ's, featuring Hatfield Catering, as well as fundraiser raffles, we would love to set up at your event, and will gladly accept any donation. Any donations we receive are used towards the Lansing Recreation scholarships as as well as our Lansing High School Scholarships that we give for seniors. Remember, your donation is tax deductible!
