Experience famed designer Jeff Leatham’s bold and colorful vision in the 18th annual NYBG Orchid Show. Captivating installations and designs transform the historic conservatory into a different color experience and visual effect, like the turn of a kaleidoscope.
Thousands of orchids provide bursts of forms and colors—in purples, reds, oranges, and hot pink—in overhead arches, vine-inspired ribbons, mirrored sculpture, dramatic lighting, and other artistic embellishments.
The show is indoors but it is a bit of a lovely outdoor walk to get to the Conservatory but plan/dress accordingly. Also explore the interactive Children’s Garden with indoor and outdoor playspaces.
Marvel at model trains zipping around stunning New York landmark replicas made of plant parts such as nuts, bark, and leaves, and enjoy hands-on holiday fun for the entire family (most of it in the climate-controlled indoors).
