Longwood Gardens – Festival of Fountains
Tue, September 1 - Sun, September 27
Summer at Longwood makes a splash as the Gardens’ fountain collection jets to life. The Main Fountain Garden offers jaw-dropping performances daily and extended hours for Illuminated Fountain Performances on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. Guests can also enjoy the Open Air Theatre fountains, which perform daily, as well as the picturesque Italian Water Garden, which offers a cool respite from the warm summer sun. The wildly popular Fireworks & Fountains Shows return with six new shows: May 24, July 2, July 18, August 8, September 6, and September 26.
Festival of Fountains also features the Gardens in their summer splendor. Flowering annuals and perennials abound, as well as our breathtaking Waterlily Display that showcases aquatic plants from all over the world. Guests can also embark on a walk in the expansive Meadow Garden, enjoy a shaded stroll among Longwood’s historic trees, and enjoy sitting under the stars with family and friends in our popular Beer Garden.
General admission tickets for Festival of Fountains and tickets for Fireworks and Fountains Shows go on sale April 6 at 9 am.
