“Orchid Evenings”: Experience the Energy & Nightlife of Singapore
New York Botanical Garden (Bronx, NY)
March 16 – April 27
Enjoy an elegant night out at the New York Botanical Garden’s annual “Orchid Evenings”. New York City’s most spectacular evening outings are back, bringing the color and nightlife of Singapore with them. Step into one of the world’s greenest cultures as Supertrees come alive around you, exhilarating with a display of lights and orchids after dark in the Conservatory. Sip a Singapore Sling and purchase a bite to eat from the Bronx Night Market Pop-up while freestyle dancers and DJs perform throughout the night, and explore the kaleidoscope of orchid varieties from the “City in a Garden” and beyond. This is a very special and romantic destination!

Sakura Matsuri at Brooklyn Botanic Garden
April 27 – 28, 2019
Brooklyn Botanic Garden
900 Washington Avenue
This annual, highly anticipated event draws multitudes of attendees as we all gather in celebration of the season, the beautiful blossoms from/of the cherry trees and enjoy all the many Japanese cultural offerings.
From taiko drumming, other musical performances (indie , punk, pop genres and others), martial arts demonstrations to dance performances, Kabuki Buyo dance and much more.
One needs a ticket for either or both days and you can head on over to the official website to learn more. Members of the garden, as is the case with many other venues, get discounted access. Students and seniors get discounts as well.
Also, visit this page at the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation for info as well.
Please do keep in mind how this is merely a special event taking place over two days. You can always visit the garden on other days to experience the luscious pinks of the cherry blossoms as they’ll be in bloom for a period of time. We’ve done it repeatedly, paying close attention to the one day of the week when admission is free. Be sure to visit their site for details in that regard.

“”The Egg Rolls, Egg Creams and Empanadas Festival is the Museum at Eldridge Street’s signature event. Started in 2000, the festival is a celebration of the diverse cultures that make up our Lower East Side/Chinatown community. Along with neighborhood partners, the festival celebrates the folklife of Eastern European Jewish, Chinese, and Puerto Rican communities in this corner of New York City through music, dance, crafts, ritual practices, foodways, and other creative expressions. Our festival is a place of immersive learning, providing a meaningful appreciation of difference and shared identity. We aim to foster cross-cultural communication as we honor the spirit of this ever-changing neighborhood and open a dialogue about the immigrant experience in New York City today.””
