The 2020 Libertarian Party of New York State Convention will be held online September 26—27, 2020.


Jeff Motta is leading a committee to organize the convention. The convention was scheduled to be held at the Radisson Hotel in New Rochelle, but due to the venue limiting their events to a maximum of 50 people, the Convention Committee decided to pursue an online convention held on Zoom. Several participants decided to hold satellite convention sites.

The theme of the convention is "Breathe Free Again."
