Event Navigation



11:00 AM
Honor March
Join re-enactors and musicians in a parade to Green-Wood’s Civil War Soldiers’ Lot for a ceremony including remarks, a names recitation by decendants of Civil War veterans, an artillery salute, and more.


2:30 PM
Annual Memorial Day Concert
Bring a blanket and enjoy this free early summer performance – a NYC favorite. The concert features the ISO Symphonic Band, founded in 1995 to sponsor talented students throughout New York City and led by ISO’s inimitable founder and conductor Brian P. Worsdale.


Each year we feature the works of Green-Wood’s permanent residents Fred Ebb, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Leonard Bernstein, and many others. Local vendors will be on site to sell food and drink all day.


The concert is a free event, but please register here so that we can gauge response. We encourage you to consider making an optional donation with your reservation, to ensure our ability to continue to offer these events free of charge.


Special Memorial Day Trolley Tour (SOLD OUT)
A special trolley tour with Green-Wood Historian Jeff Richman begins right after the Memorial Day concert, featuring Green-Wood highlights and veteran connections. Green-Wood trolley tours are fully accessible and ADA compliant.
