A Night at Niblo’s Garden

Saturday, July 11, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This popular event is back for 2015 and better than ever! Imagine an outdoor pleasure dome, strung with lights, adorned with fountains and featuring the top musicians, dancers and entertainers of the time. That was the scene at Niblo’s Garden – the premier entertainment house of the 19th century. Niblo himself had a habit of turning his Green-Wood mausoleum – built years before his death – into a pleasure garden of its own, with friends, picnics and entertainment. Rumor has it he even stocked the nearby Crescent Water with goldfish!

This year we’ve teamed up with Bindlestiff Circus, a vaudeville and performing arts powerhouse since 1995. Bindlestiff will transform Niblo’s final resting place into a Victorian extravaganza of performing arts. Your night will begin with a picnic around the beautiful pond Crescent Water, and will unfold into an evening of showmanship in front of Niblo’s grand mausoleum. As always, author and Niblo expert Ben Feldman will hold court as Niblo himself. Bring a blanket, snacks, and drinks, and prepare to be dazzled by 19th-century games, fire eaters, contortionists, and much more – all lit by candles and a starry sky.
