We recently had the chance to attend the opening night of Orchid Evenings at the New York Botanical Garden. Orchid Evenings take place on select Friday and Saturday evenings during the run of the Orchid Show at NYBG and are for adults 21 and over. Tickets include entry to the Orchid Show, incredible performances, and access to signature cocktails and the Bronx Night Market.
About the Orchid Show:
The dazzling floral creations of Jeff Leatham, famed artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris and floral designer to the stars, return for The Orchid Show’s 19th year. Leatham’s bold and colorful vision will unfold through captivating installations and designs, transforming the historic Enid A. Haupt Conservatory into a different color experience and visual effect, like the turn of a kaleidoscope.
Orchid towers of orange, yellow, and green, undulating fields of white, and overhead plumes of purple, together with artistic embellishments and a kaleidoscopic tunnel of lights, will enthrall visitors.
Originally debuted in 2020, The Orchid Show: Jeff Leatham’s Kaleidoscope was on track to be NYBG’s most popular Orchid Show yet. Don’t miss this horticultural spectacle featuring thousands of dramatically displayed orchids in every shape and size.
While the Orchid Show is equally as beautiful in both the daytime and in the evening, I personally LOVE evening events at the garden- and these performers happen to be my favorite ones yet! Dancer-choreographer Princess Lockerooo along with Grammy-nominee Harold O’Neal have put together such a fun performance, with a chance for everyone to get in on the dancing after.
The Orchid Show runs until May 1, 2022 and Orchid Evenings take place on April 2, 9, 16, 22, & 23.
