Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

  • Apr 8 12pm - 5pm
  • Wave Hill Public Garden & Cultural Center

The solar eclipse is coming to NYC and we’re saving you a front row seat! Experience this amazing celestial event from our open lawns with spectacular views of the Hudson River and open sky above. Pot up some seeds and make a festive eclipse party hat or celestial floral headband at our activity stations and enjoy live music and story time with the Riverdale Library. There's solar-spirited fun for all at this community event!

We won’t see another eclipse in NYC until 2044, so don’t miss it! All registrants receive a pair of safety-certified eclipse viewing glasses.

Grab a light lunch or drinks at our Cafe or bring snacks to enjoy in our outdoor picnic areas (limited seating available). Personal chairs and blankets are allowed for this special event and a limited number of folding chairs are available to borrow.

In case of rain, the party moves indoors! Watch the eclipse livestream on our flatscreen TVs. Enjoy all the activities throughout historic Wave Hill House and other indoor spaces. Most events will take place in fully accessible areas of the garden.

Advance registration encouraged, online at the link below or by calling 718.549.3200 x251. Day-of registration based on availability and not guaranteed.
