 Carpooling is a great idea...just move all the details to a personal email or greeting once you have established an initial contact with the party you want to ride with.  That way we avoid the whole group getting all the details from the comment section  that do not pertain to others.

    I was there with my mom and looked for the balloons at intermission, but didn't see them. Regardless, I thought the concert was fantastic!

      Sorry you missed us Danielle, if you got there later probably tough...,we had 4 black and white helium balloons, up near the front right side near the tree, but....there was quite a large crowd which can make things challenging. Glad you enjoyed the day. Until next time ... :- )

    Was a fabulous Concert. Sorry I did not catch up with everyone, got there late and had my mother with me. Too many people for her to manuever very far. It has been years since there were that many people there. Was there when Yo Yo MA was there 2 yrs ago and not nearly as many people. First time I can every remember them having to delay the concert because of traffic.

    Local weather in the Berkshires is 84 and sunny today. I heard that some parked a half a mile away from the wine tasting tent with Tanglewood being moderately busy. Wear shoes you can walk a distance in and safe travels!

    August 10, 2014

    • Ralph

      As an add on, things could get warm, if we can't be located in the shade, which may be at a premium. I would recommend dressing lightly, with a cover up option and bringing suntan lotion. I may bring my beach umbrella, if they are allowed on site.

    • Eleanor D.

      Hi. There are 2 of us interested. We could meet you at the Newtown exit of I84 (11?) if that would work.

    Hi, did everybody buy their tickets already? I just called and was told that the lawn tickets only sell out for James Taylor :)
    The person I talked to suggested waiting and buying the ticket in person that day, to avoid the 6.75 handling fee. What are your thoughts?

    August 2, 2014

    • Cathy M

      That is what everyone has been saying in past postings and experiences, will cost you about 27.00 online and 21.00 at the gate.

    I've extended my visit to Tanglewood to include the Grand Tasting and two Berkshire Fringe performances http://berkshirefringe.org/calendarre
    This is my first trip to the area - if you have any travel tips or restaurant suggestions, please send me an email. Thanks!

    August 3, 2014

  • Eva

    I'd like to carpool. The person I was making plans with had to cancel. The best way from here is Rt. 8 North, so anywhere along the way (Waterbury, Thomaston, Torrington, Winsted) would be fine for me to meet, if anyone is interested.

    I didn't think of that because I've never been to Tanglewood. I'm a newbie! Is it a long line?

    May 29, 2014

  • kerry w.

    I got my lawn ticket mostly to avoid the line at the gate

    2 · May 29, 2014

  • Cathy M

    Ralph's suggestion is probably a good idea, double check the ticket status as time draws near. Also it is great that we are working on carpool situations. I am suggesting that after you have established a carpool situation, move the correspondence to personal emails or Greetings effecting those involved, so that not EVERYONE is getting all the personal details of your carpool situation, we want to avoid all the extra mail to all people going, that may not be interested...Share all your carpool information with interested parties, email, cell numbers, meeting spot and time to meet... Please be considerate and be prompt in a carpool situation as you do not want to inconvenience others, (I like to tack on extra time at the meeting spot, to get settled, say a good 15-20 minutes before you take off, the more people involved, the more important this is). Drivers should be given a contribution for their gas and any tolls, parking situations...
    See you there, can't wait!

    Kathy, I called Tanglewood because I was having trouble getting a ticket online. they said to buy the ticket at the gate because its 30% less and the only sell out there is James Taylor.

    1 · May 27, 2014

    • Ralph

      I kind of thought that was the case. They sell an awful lot of lawn tickets. May be good to confirm this a week before. It would be a long drive to find concert sold out. I will wait to see about wine festival and concert, until weather is certain. I saw Yo Yo/Manny Ax in The Hall and a heavy rain storm hit an hour before curtain. Even lawn folk with raingear were soaked and leaving before the concert started. I was never so happy to have covered seats, and lucked into stage seating at that.
