“Wonderful evenings under the stars”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

I've seen many concerts and plays here and there is something so relaxing about having a picnic on the lawn while listening to some good music and enjoying the summer nights. Hard to get to without a car, but otherwise lovely.

“Must Visit, Especially for Locals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Wolf Trap is like so many monuments, museums and other splendid places in the DC area. Well-known. Easily recognized. And just as easily driven past, or otherwise ignored during the scamper to-and-fro' that imbues the lives of those who live and work in the DC region.

Treat yourself and a friend to a special experience to savor: Buy lawn seats to one show, ANY show, at Wolf Trap. By doing so, you'll reconnect with one aspect of what makes being a Washingtonian special.

“Concerts are great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Usually have a few people and get lawn seats for many concerts during the summer and a really great time. Insects are at a minimum and typically we have food and beverages (some are alcoholic - which is fine at this park) and the accoustics are great. A littly hard to see the performers so we bring binoculars. It's a social experience with live excellent music. Not too many places on earth like this.

“Great outdoor venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

This is my favorite place to see a show in the Washington, DC metro area. You can picnic on the lawn, outside food and drink are allowed. Great music under the stars is a perfect way to spend a summer evening.

“Great Entertainers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

You can see a number of first-rate entertainment at Wolf Trap and can experience a performance while sitting in the fresh air of Virginia. Many bring a picnic and sit on the lawn while they enjoy a performance.
