Holiday Train Show

November 22 through January 15
New York Botanical Garden, NYC

Enchanting model trains zip through a display of 150 landmarks, each re-created with bark, leaves, and other natural materials—all under the twinkling glow of the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory. Marvel at G-scale locomotives humming along among familiar sights such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty, and Rockefeller Center on nearly a half-mile of track. This year’s exhibition showcases Midtown Manhattan, with iconic skyscrapers and other architectural wonders sharing the spotlight among old and new collection favorites that define this celebrated district. More info on NYBG site.



Wednesday, November 29 from 4pm–8pm 4–8 p.m.
Enid A. Haupt Conservatory


All aboard for a private viewing of NYC’s favorite holiday tradition! Featuring a delicious dinner and an appearance by Chef Carla Hall, co-host of ABC’s The Chew.

The festivities begin with a private viewing of the Holiday Train Show, passed hors d’oeuvres, a full bar, and plenty of treats for the kids. Then the fun moves to the Gingerbread Café, where kids can enjoy a hot chocolate bar and activities like apple cider pressing, woodland terrarium building, and cookie decorating with Carla Hall. Next, indulge in classic holiday recipes at a festive family dinner. And to really get you in the holiday spirit, the New York City Children’s Chorus will be performing throughout the evening.
