Tanglewood Grounds Visit

Tanglewood Welcomes Visitors to the Grounds Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

Welcome to Tanglewood!

As we prepare for visitors to come to the Tanglewood campus this summer, we’ve made updates based on guidance from health authorities, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and appropriate government agencies. These measures are designed to promote:

  • Cleanliness
  • Physical distancing
  • Reduced contact

It may be different from the last time you visited since we will not be offering live performances and have certain protocols in place, but we are so happy to share our beloved grounds with you. We are offering timed entry by advanced registration. Visiting hours are Wednesdays from 9am-12pm, Saturdays and Sundays from 10am-4pm starting July 5th through August 23rd.  

For safety reasons, we have capacities in place for the number of vehicles allowed in our parking lot at one time. Please reserve the number of tickets that will equal the number of people who will be in your car. We ask that a second reservation be made for any additional guests coming in a separate vehicle.

Visitors are required to register in advance to sign up for a dedicated time to arrive at the Tanglewood campus. Once on campus, box office staff will be on duty at the main gate to confirm registrations, after which visitors will be able to enter to stroll the Tanglewood grounds and sit on blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy the many iconic vistas available from the grounds. Registration is available now for the month of July, and August registration will be released in Mid-July.

We have put together a detailed list of Frequently Asked Questions for you to help prepare for your visit with us.
