A Night at Niblo’s Garden with Bindlestiff Family Cirkus
Enjoy a twilight picnic at this re-creation of New York City’s premier 19thcentury theater
A Night at Niblo’s Garden
Friday & Saturday, July 13 and 14, 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
This popular event is back in 2018 for two nights! Begin the evening with a picnic (bring your own) around beautiful Crescent Water pond. Then prepare to be 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 once one of New York City’s largest and most elaborate theaters (at Prince and Broadway in SoHo) replete with sparkling lanterns, fountains, and an open-air restaurant and bar that featured the top musicians, dancers, and entertainers of the time.
$35 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $40 for non-members.
