Tanglewood is a feast for all senses... the location itself simply glorious, Nature is present everywhere and visual joy is matched by clean open surroundings as well as the beautiful music that fills the air. A first visit, but definitely not the last.

Have returned year after year for their wonderful matinee concerts. Always take our own picnic & sit on the lawn. Highly recommend.

Doesn't get any better than the BSO performing at Tanglewood. The orchestra and chorus were outstanding.

It just gets better. The beauty of the property (see photo), the festive mood of the people (photo) and, of course, the music (photo). We used to schlep the chairs, the blanket and the food and drinks and hang out on the lawn for the...More

Extremely enjoyable place for a concert. We had great weather. Since you can carry anything in with you, wish we would have packed more extensive food and drink. Also a short table.

Hubby and I have always wanted to see a show at Tanglewood and have always wanted to see James Taylor. This 4th of July we checked both of these off our bucket list. Tickets for the lawn we're only $25. This place is so beautiful....More

I do think there is a place where you can purchase food on the premises, but most people pack a picnic and bring it with them. You may purchase picnic basket meals from many restaurants in the area as well. I think all would... More
