Spring is finally upon us, but it isn’t truly official until New Yorkers and visitors alike, visit the 17th Annual Orchid Show at New York Botanical Garden.
This year, the show is inspired by Singapore, who’s national flower is the orchid. As you enter the greenhouse, you are transported to the small island, taking in all aspects of its beautiful nature. With various species of the orchids featured, there’s a fresh bloom and vibrant new color in just about every crevice of the space. We got the chance to check out the show during the first night of their Orchid Evenings, which is 21+ fun!
Tour the different climates featured, such as the heat of the desert, or the cooling rainforest. We felt as if we were really able to experience authentic parts of the world with each plant we came across; as several were pulled from different countries, and could never grow naturally in the US.
Before heading to the greenhouse, you can extend your experience by making a reservation at the Hudson Garden Grill. The last reservation prior to the show is at 5:30pm. Then while walking through the show, be sure to sip on the signature themed cocktail, the Singapore Sling, or enjoy a classic glass of wine or beer. Bronx Night Market is also present, serving up eats from their best vendors.

I personally refer to this as my supernova of love and light song. I wrote this song at the end of a relationship (surprise, surprise) but with the intention of engulfing my spirit in light AND to also send out waves of that light/positive energy to world. Live @nybg for the 2019 #orchidevenings with 🎸 by @milviomega and 🎥 by @hillsing . Also, shoutout to my buddy @monothemaker and @brewerystudio for working on this track with me. ❤️🌈🥰
There are insta-worthy spots found in just about every room. We recommend striking a pose in front of the Orchid Supertree, or possibly the arched walkway, where you can capture the most the show has to offer in one photo.
Tickets are $38 for non-members and $28 for members (Adults 21+ only). Guests can attend every Saturday in March and every Friday and Saturday in April. So grab a friend or two, and be prepared for quite the magical evening. You can also view the Orchid Show every day during normal business hours.
We’re also giving away a Pair of Tickets to Orchid Evenings!
