The Longwood Gardens Annual Chrysanthemum Festival starts
and you've got an extra month to see the Main  Fountain Garden! 



Half a million guests have visited Longwood Gardens' revitalized Main Fountain Garden since opening to rave reviews on May 27th - so they've extended performances throughout October!

The Main Fountain Garden returned in May with glorious fountain performances, concerts, and special events. Originally slated to end their season on September 30th, Paul Redman, President and CEO announced “Our guests asked for more fountain performances and we are pleased that we can make that happen."  There are 12-minute shows daily at 11 am, 1, 3, and 5 pm through October 31.

The fountains perform at 6:30 pm followed by a spectacular 30-minute
Illuminated Fountain Performance set to music at 7:30 pm.
