Moonrise, Green-Wood’s new take on our annual gala, is back for its second year! And it’s going to be even bigger and better this time around. 

You’ll enter Green-Wood after the gates have closed for the day and receive a specially designed tote bag. In every direction, trees, winding pathways, and historic monuments will be gloriously illuminated. You’ll stroll under the bright light of the waning full moon, enjoying a curated selection of on-the-go snacks, and, at the Waxing Moon level or higher, stations for hors d’oeuvres and light dinner. As you meander along the path, you’ll come across music and performances presented by critically acclaimed artists and Green-Wood fan favorites. Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic libations will abound.


Back by popular demand! A limited number of lower-cost tickets are available for $125. When they’re gone, they’re gone!

Looking for a VIP experience?

In addition to the fabulous happenings in the main performance space, VIP sponsors and their guests have access to a private VIP section featuring exclusive performances, specialty cocktails, artisan desserts, and space to sit and mingle with friends old and new.

Our most important fundraiser of the year!

Your sponsorship of Moonrise ensures that we can continue to serve our friends in Brooklyn and beyond, so we urge you to be as generous as you can. Donations received through Moonrise sponsorships and ticket sales provide critical support for Green-Wood’s school tours, restoration, arts and cultural programs, archives, and key initiatives in nature and the environment. Thank you!
