Longwood from Home

From our splash-tacular Behind the Scenes: Under the Fountains Tour to a vibrant live concert during our Members-only Hours, summer fun awaits all August in our Gardens. Read on for details on our virtual Member Orientation, in-person Member Appreciation Days, and much more. Your summer getaway awaits!

Time for Summer Fun

Join us this August for four of our new-this-year Illuminated Fountain Performances! Proud (August 6) honors just a few of the many inspiring women in music; Leading Ladies: Madonna and Lady Gaga (August 13) celebrates pop icons and powerhouse influencers Madonna and Lady Gaga; Here You Come Again (August 21) showcases powerhouse hits by cultural icon Dolly Parton; and Freedom (August 27) honors the themes of freedom, hope, and strength. Sing along to the music and dance with the fountains for some summer fun! 

Behind the Scenes Tour: Under the Fountains 

On select days through October, experience the Main Fountain Garden from the inside out and explore the inner workings of the garden underground. See how this spectacular garden and its more than 1,700 fountain jets and streams dazzle and delight during this guided 60-minute tour traveling from above ground to the vast tunnel system hidden below. A special tour ticket is required for this experience.
