All Aboard for Adults-Only Nights at the Holiday Train Show

On these nights exclusively for adults 21 and over, the wintry landscape of NYBG sets the scene for festive outdoor adventures, with an after-dark viewing of the Holiday Train Show® as the centerpiece. Purchase a drink from one of our seasonal bars and a bite to eat from the Bronx Night Market Holiday Pop-up, then set out to explore the night’s offerings. Relax and warm up around the fire pits in the Leon Levy Visitor Center, watch art emerge from giant blocks of ice during live ice-sculpting demonstrations, sing along to your favorite tunes with dueling pianos in the Pine Tree Café, and listen to roving a cappella groups as they guide you through the Garden.

Non-Members $38 / Garden Members $28 (Adults 21 and over)
