Event Details


The winter solstice has been marked with festivities for millennia in cultures across the globe. Did you know that ancient people believed evergreen trees had magical powers to stay green and withstand winter? In our last public program of 2016, just two days before the solstice, join evergreen-filled Green-Wood to celebrate the coming of winter. Learn of the cemetery’s history, our beautiful Himalayan Pines, and famous residents before ending at the chapel for an outdoor bonfire with warm refreshments, sweet treats, and a great decoration to take home. Be sure to toss on a hat and gloves! This brisk walking tour will start from our gothic archway at the main entrance at 5th Avenue and 25th Street.
$25 for members of Green-Wood and BHS/$30 for non-members.
