Pokémon GO Fest 2023: New York City

Pokémon GO Fest


Pokémon GO Fest 2023 is coming to New York City, and we’re planning a big event for the Big Apple! GO Fest 2023: New York City is split into different experiences between two locations: Randall’s Island Park and throughout New York City!

Attendees will enjoy exclusive gameplay, special bonuses, and more as they adventure alongside thousands of fellow Trainers and spend half their day in Randall’s Island Park and half exploring the larger New York City area!

Tickets purchased include both the Randall’s Island Park AND New York City experience—the only difference is the time of day Trainers are at each location.

Special early bird ticket pricing is available NOW until June 15, 2023. These discounted tickets are limited, so snag them early to take advantage of this cheaper ticket price!

Trainers can purchase tickets here.

Trainers will select a date and a time slot for their Park Experience. The City experience will take place from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm ET.

Park Experience Choices

  • 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. ET
  • 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. ET


Optional Add-ons

As optional bonuses for attendees, we’re offering several add-ons. Please note: it will still be possible to add these to your ticket purchase after your initial order, so if you can’t decide right away, you can always come back to add on an add-on!
