  • A Longwood Christmas

    Let's take in the Wonder of the Holidays at Longwood Gardens this year.

    "The sounds of the season resonate throughout our indoor and outdoor Gardens during our musically-inspired display.

    A towering 18-foot Fraser Fir exquisitely decorated with a garland of musical instruments takes center stage in our elegant Music Room. Organ sing-alongs, strolling carolers, and performances fill our Gardens with festive cheer. Delight in our holiday horticulture showcasing more than 6,000 seasonal plants.

    Outside, the sounds of oohs and aahs fill the air as illuminated stars twinkle above, colorful fountains dance to holiday music, and a half-million lights brighten the night.

    We’re bringing back not just one, but three fire pits this holiday season!

    The fire pits will be placed at the Hour Glass Lake Pavilion, Peirce-du Pont House Plaza, and Dogwood Plaza. They'll be available every night from 4:30–10:00 pm throughout A Longwood Christmas, weather permitting."  Longwood Gardens website.

    ***Update: Please RSVP if you want to attend. I will check the weather a couple of days before the event.  Please wait until I confirm the weather before purchasing tickets as they are non refundable even for bad weather. 

    Ticket prices are $23 for Thursday, December 15th. Please purchase a timed ticket prior to our meet-up time of 6:30. You can enter the gardens anytime after your ticket time. Once you purchase your ticket, please comment below that you have your ticket(s). 

    This is the link to purchase tickets for December 15th: 

    If you are a member, this is a non peak day so you do not need to make a reservation. 

    NOTE: Rain date is currently scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 18th. Those tickets are $30 because it is a peak day and members will need to make a reservation. 

    **This event will be cross posted with the Fun in Media Meetup Group.  This is our first joint event, very excited to enjoy this amazing time of year with this really fun group!!  

    Hope to see you there!

    Hi Everyone! I checked the 10 day weather forecast. It looks like Thursday the 15th will be clear, with the moonrise close to our arrival. This most likely confirms this date. I will send one more update posted to the comments for confirmation to buy tickets. Please let me know if you have any questions.
    Can't wait!!

    Hi Careyann, I'd love to come but it will be too far and too late for me to make it on a weeknight. Have fun at this event!

    Hi Everyone! I wanted to provide an update. Please keep your RSVPs up to date for final count. I will watch the weather, to confirm the date a few days prior. As of now, we are planning for the 15th. With the timed tickets for non-members there are "no refunds". The events are on RAIN or SHINE. Please do not purchase your ticket prior until notice is given, if you plan to definitely go with the group. I will provide an update next week.
    Thank you so much.

    I am a little confused. I thought Carreyann picked to go in a Thursday. If that is not a definite I would prefer to go on a Sunday. Thanjs

    I prefer Sunday, since I work in Philadelphia I would not be able to make an evening during the work week. Thank you.
