“Holiday Sing-a-Long”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had a good time at Wolf Trap's outdoor theater Holiday Sing-a-Long on the first weekend in Advent. The Marine Band played and two soloists sang, along with 400 children from the DC area school choruses and choirs who helped lead the singing of the Christmas carols and Hanukkah songs. Guests were encouraged to bring a bell and a candle--one to play along on Jingle Bells, and the other to join in lighting while singing Silent Night. The Filene Center, an outdoor theater, has a covered seating area as well as lawn seats and holds an audience of 6,800 people, which was filled this evening. It is a free event and no tickets are required, but all were asked to bring a toy to donate to the Toys for Tots. It was a great time, which seems like any concert held her would be.

“Yanni At Wolf Trap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

we bought lawn tickets. At first I was concerned about being able to see the stage. But was able to see perfectly. We got sandwiches and chips from Wegmans. Awesome concert!

“Unbeatable and not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

What's not to like? The ONLY national park for the performing arts. Beautifully and expertly maintained. Great venue for outdoor concerts in the summer, and an intimate and folksy Barns venue for the winter. Wonderful surrounding parkland to picnic before the concerts, or even picnic within the venue. Great selection of performances. Plentiful food & drink - lots of bathrooms that seem to do a land office business.
I honestly can't think of a single bad thing to say. The only negative comment I heard from a friend was that he didn't like the birds singing to interrupt the concert.

“Always fun for a group to bring dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Going to wolftrap is a summer ritual--we go 2-3 times with a group. Using the lawn for a picnic is fun and makes the entertainment reasonably priced.

“Entertainment Tonight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

Great entertainment all summer long. Whether you do a outdoor picnic or sit in the open theater. You can hear the entertainment everywhere. If you don't mind that there is no A/C you would give it 5 stars too.
