The special summer evenings include live performances by Bronx musicians playing jazz, Celtic, classical and folk music on the Great Lawn, overlooking the Palisdes. The program is held in conjunction with Bronx Council on the Arts. For the first time this year, visitors can bring their own lawn chairs and picnic food.
Sunset Wednesday Yoga classes are taught by Yoga for Bliss instructor Joanne Salome, from 6 to 7:15 p.m. and cost $15 for members, $23 for non-members. Participants can register at Wave Hill the day of the class.
Sunset Wednesday Garden Walks take place at 6:30 p.m. and meet at the Perkins Visitors Center. They are free with admission to the grounds.
The Wave Hill House is still under renovation, but is on schedule to be reopened next spring. In the meantime, visitors are invited to bring in their own food or call to inquire about food service options before arriving at Wave Hill.
There is a free shuttle service available to and from Metro-North’s Riverdale station and the No. 1 train stop at West 242nd Street.
On Sunset Wednesdays, the shuttle stops at the No. 1 train stop at 5:10, 5:40, 6:10, 6:40, 7:10 and 7:40 p.m.
