New York City’s Most Beloved Holiday Tradition Is Back!

The Holiday Train Show returns bigger than ever with more trains and an all-new, outdoor train display. Watch model trains zip past nearly 200 famous New York landmarks in the warmth of the Conservatory…or head outside to capture your perfect holiday photos at our all new outdoor mountainscape. After dark, join us for NYBG GLOW and discover the beauty of our landscape and historic buildings, illuminated across the grounds. And don’t miss the return of our fan-favorite Bar Car Nights, 21-and-over evenings featuring the Holiday Train Show and curated cocktails. These special evenings feature music, experiences, food, and more—making for the ultimate night out this season.
