Our friends invited us to go see Idina Menzel with them at Taglewood and we had such a great time. The concert was fantastic and Tanglewood so appealing. Even with so many thousands of people attending it was a very nice experience. The parking is well regulated and we actually got out much faster than we have at smaller venues.... More

Absolutely worth a trip to this scenic, well managed and beautiful location in the Berkshires. We brought some finger food and wine and enjoyed the park like setting. The concerts were great and the staff very efficient

We went to Tanglewood for the first time and were very impressed with the Shed as a music venue and the quality of the music, which couldn't be better. We got "VIP" passes. Oooh! Everyone who buys a shed ticket gets VIP passes which get you access to the "VIP Tent", which is labeled "Tent Club", kind of a miss,... More

This was my first visit to Tanglewood and saw Idina Menzel in concert. She gave an incredible show. I researched what the experience would be like, so we brought in picnic blankets, a picnic dinner and lawn chairs. We dined on the lawn, as did the masses, and took our seats shortly before the performance. What an absolutely lovely evening!... More

Tanglewood has a well-deserved reputation for some of the world's finest music in a beautiful natural setting. The acoustics of the Shed are nearly perfect. We visited for the Movie Music concert. The film clips are perfectly edited and synchronized to the music. A wonderful, memorable night of music.

I had no idea the grounds were so large and if you come during the day, they even have a museum showcasing the history of the music venue. A must experience if you enjoy music in an outside setting although there is an indoor hall also.

This is my second visit to Tanglewood, this time for the Eddie Izzard comedy performance. The show was fantastic, and Tanglwood itself is an excellent place for entertainment. Tanglewood is easy to locate, and upon arrival you are greeted by courteous and professional staff. If you do not bring a your own food, there is food for purchase which is... More

I went with friends to hear the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) and a picnic on the lawn one August Friday summer night. Tickets were a bargain $10 and the lawn is perfect for a relaxed, casual supper. The Boston Symphony Orchestra makes this their summer home. The property is stunning - don't miss the museum in the house. Unfortunately, the... More

We went to see the Boston Pops perform film night at Tanglewood and it was nothing less than amazing. I cannot believe how well this place is run. The other people who attend are so nice and respectful of everyone else. No one leaves trash around and the grounds are as clean as when you arrive. The music was brilliant... More

We spent two days at Tanglewood. We attended the wine and food festival on our first day and were amazed at the number of wineries, wines, and foods offered. We also enjoyed cooking demonstrations complete with tastings paired with appropriate wines. Our experience was from 12-3 pm and was just the right amount of time. The next day we took... More
