A Night at Niblo’s Garden

This popular event is back in 2019 for two nights! Enjoy a Victorian extravaganza put on by our good friends at Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. Begin the evening with a picnic (bring your own) around beautiful Crescent Water before being dazzled by nineteenth-century showmanship: fire eaters, musicians, contortionists, performers on floats, and much more—all under the starry summer skies. The evening celebrates Green-Wood permanent resident William Niblo, whose Niblo’s Garden was one of New York City’s largest and most elaborate theaters of its time. Author Benjamin Feldman reprises his role as the man himself, Mr. Niblo.

Picnics welcome, but no coolers or outside alcohol permitted. Refreshments, wine, and beer will be available for purchase.

$35 for members of Green-Wood and BHS / $40 for non-members

How does A Night at Niblo’s Garden get any better? A special VIP experience of course! Arrive an hour before the main show (at 6pm) to enjoy:

  • Exclusive private performances by Bindlestiff Cirkus
  • Tour of William Niblo’s famed mausoleum by Mr. Niblo himself (played by author Ben Feldman)
  • Complimentary refreshments throughout the entire evening
  • A special box of sweet treats to enjoy
  • Access to prime seating before the general public arrives
