Jazz at Lincoln Center Brings the Sounds of Summer to the New York Botanical Garden

And Holiday Train Show® and NYBG GLOW Return This November!

August brings cool summer nights and the lively sounds of brass and strings with weekly performances curated by our friends at Jazz at Lincoln Center. All month long, join us during our extended hours on Thursdays for live music from some of the jazz scene’s best and brightest, including Giveton Gelin, Mariel Bildsten, and more. And the best part? These performances are included with your KUSAMA Garden & Gallery Pass or KUSAMA Garden Pass tickets—no special ticket required!

And Holiday Train Show® and NYBG GLOW Return This November!

NYBG’s Holiday Train Show—a favorite holiday tradition—is back for its 30th year! See model trains zip through an enchanting display of more than 175 New York landmarks, each delightfully re-created from natural materials such as birch bark, lotus pods, and cinnamon sticks. And on select dates, start a new holiday tradition as day turns to night with NYBG GLOW. See NYBG’s iconic sights and buildings come to life as dramatic, glittering canvases across a newly expanded 1.5 miles of colorful experience. These special evenings feature music, dance, food, and pop-up performances around the Garden.

Holiday Train Show® on view November 20, 2021–January 23, 2022
NYBG GLOW on view select nights, November 24, 2021–January 22, 2022

Accesibility: All NYBG buildings, seasonal exhibitions, and tour vehicles are accessible for wheelchairs, walkers, and personal 3- and 4-wheeled electric scooters. However, due to the Garden’s naturally varied topography, portions of the historic landscape may be inaccessible.
