Presented by the New York Nineteenth Century Society, the Extravaganza aims to be an immersive educational experience. A hand-picked group of renowned historians and passionate artists will share their love of nineteenth-century New York.

All free or affordably priced events during the three-day weekend are open to the public, either by RSVP or on a first-come, first-served basis. Please join us in exploring the past of our great metropolis.

You can also choose to join us in dressing up to fit the theme! There are events that welcome you in your finest nineteenth-century attire, whether it’s an historically accurate reproduction wardrobe from the Civil War era, a fabulous Steampunk-influenced flight of fancy, or a unique Victorian-inspired artistic creation of your own design!

These programs are supported by public funds from the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs.
