Longwood Christmas Season

A Longwood Christmas

November 22, 2018–January 6, 2019

Experience the Joys of the Season

This holiday season we look at the Christmas tree in a new light. Join us as we celebrate the Tree Reimagined with festive firs suspended from above, towering tannenbaums created from books to birdhouses to stained glass, and more traditional favorites elevated with surprising new twists.

Outdoors, gloriously illuminated trees lead you on an enchanting holiday journey through our Gardens. Stroll underneath floating orbs of light, watch as tree roots and branches take new illuminated life, and see our Main Fountain Garden as you’ve never seen it before. Warm up by our welcoming fire pits, listen to carolers, and relish in the wonder of A Longwood Christmas.
