The spirit of the holiday season overflows during A Longwood Christmas with our fountain-inspired display.

Blue and white twinkling lights, whirling fountain features, thousands of seasonal plants, and a bounty of trees with icicles and fountain-inspired glass ornaments fill our Conservatory.

Outside, a magical world awaits. From our Italian Water Garden illuminated with a 20-foot tree form, to a maple tree with its roots aglow near our Meadow Boardwalk, to the colorful fountains of our Open Air Theatre, there is holiday magic everywhere!
