Rain date, Saturday, July 20th

Green-Wood’s ever-popular Victorian extravaganza is back! Enjoy an enchanted evening of nineteenth-century showmanship—fire eaters, musicians, contortionists, dancers, and lots of surprises from Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.

Staged under a starry summer sky around Crescent Water, you won’t want to miss out on this celebration of Green-Wood permanent residents Martha and William Niblo, whose New York City pleasure garden (built in 1834) was one of the largest and most elaborate theaters of its time.

Price: $50 general admission, $45 for members. $75 Grandstand (details below).
