KENNETT SQUARE, PA — This holiday season, step back in time and immerse yourself in the nostalgic charm of A Longwood Christmas at Longwood Gardens. From November 17, 2023, through January 7, 2024, this beloved holiday event will take you on a journey to the past, featuring an array of dazzling displays, both indoors and outdoors.
Revel in Retro Radiance
Guests will marvel at holiday trees adorned with shimmering tinsel, throwback baubles, and childhood favorite toys. The spirit of yesteryear spills outdoors, where more than half a million twinkling lights illuminate nearly 100 trees. The sounds of carolers fill the air, and outdoor firepits offer a warm respite from the winter chill.
Step into a Mid-Century Holiday Party Scene
Inside Longwood’s Conservatory, holiday splendor awaits. The Music Room comes alive with mid-century magic, featuring blush and mint furnishings amid gold accents, a mirrored bar, and a champagne-colored tinsel tree. Handcrafted glassware from local nonprofits adds an elegant touch to the festive setting.
Experience Community Spirit and Horticultural Splendor
The historic Ballroom showcases community spirit with seven trees adorned in ornaments crafted by local non-profit organizations. And of course, a Longwood Christmas would not be complete without botanical beauty at every turn. Guests will be greeted by thousands of vibrant poinsettias, fragrant paperwhites, amaryllis, begonias, and other floral wonders.
Venture Outdoors for a Winter Wonderland
Outside, miles of twinkling lights beckon guests for a holiday stroll. Discover stars that have seemingly descended from the winter sky at the Large Lake, or enjoy a whimsical display of retro holiday lights floating on the Small Lake. A jolly red 1969 ‘Longwood Farms’ truck carrying freshly cut Christmas trees offers a nostalgic photo op.
