A Night at Niblo’s Garden with Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
Two enchanting evenings of Victorian amusements and spectacle at this re-creation of New York City’s premier 19th-century theater
July 12 & 13, 7pm – 9pm
at Brooklyn’s historic Green-Wood Cemetery
This popular event is back in 2019 for two nights! Enjoy a Victorian extravaganza put on by the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Begin the evening with a picnic (bring your own) around beautiful Crescent Water before being dazzled by nineteenth-century showmanship: fire eaters, musicians, contortionists, performers on floats, and much more—all under the starry summer skies. The evening celebrates Green-Wood permanent resident William Niblo, whose Niblo’s Garden was one of New York City’s largest and most elaborate theaters of its time. Author Benjamin Feldman reprises his role as the man himself, Mr. Niblo.
Picnics welcome, but no coolers or outside alcohol permitted. Refreshments, wine, and beer will be available for purchase.
$35 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $40 for non-members
