7 p.m. A Night at Niblo’s Garden

Saturday, July 12, 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

This popular event is back for 2014 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 goldfish-stocked ponds.

Join author, historian, and Niblo expert Ben Feldman to bring the glory of Niblo’s Garden to Green-Wood! Enjoy an evening picnic around the beautiful glacial pond Crescent Water, and take in an evening of showmanship in front of the grand Niblo mausoleum. Bring a blanket, some snacks and drinks, and you’ll be dazzled by fire jugglers, singers, even famed knife thrower Throwdini! – all under paper lanterns and a starry sky.

11:30 p.m. Our Town

Saturday, June 28, 11:30 pm - Sunday, June 29, 1:30 am

Enjoy a classic piece of American theater amidst the timeless beauty of Green-Wood Cemetery. Our Town tells the story of Emily Webb and George Gibbs of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, a small New England town at the turn of the twentieth century. But the lessons of Grover’s Corners stretch far beyond the sleepy town, as the play touches on the beauty of life, the randomness of the universe, and celebrates spirituality and the importance of memorials and memory. Deeply rooted in American and social history, Our Town fits in perfectly with Green-Wood’s own history and the hundreds of thousands of personal stories memorialized across its beautiful landscape.
