Solar Eclipse Viewing Party

April 8, noon5 pm.

Experience this amazing celestial event from the open lawns of Wave Hill 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 the 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 the Café or bring snacks to enjoy in the 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 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 or by phone. Day-of registration based on availability and not guaranteed.

This community event is free with registration.
