IL VOLO

We had very good seats to see Il Volo, three Italian youngsters (well now they're all over 20) who have sensational voices. You may have seen them on PBS. They are for real, and... read more

We got tickets to the Pixar concert. They are a bit expensive but I think that it is worth the experience. Its a nice place to go with friends and do a picnic. They only have one screen which is not enough. The location is not great. It's a 30 minutes drive from DC. There are huge lines to get... More

We had very good seats to see Il Volo, three Italian youngsters (well now they're all over 20) who have sensational voices. You may have seen them on PBS. They are for real, and while we hope they stay together for a long time to come, each has a unique voice and personality which leads us to believe that they... More

Our first visit to Wolf Trap to see Il Volo. We visited the website first but really still had no idea fully what to expect as far are the venue itself goes. So here goes: casual dress- picnic tables so you can enjoy your food you have brought form home prior to the show. They do have food options there-... More

My wife and I went to the Filene center to see beauty and the beast. The show itself was absolutely perfect, I was highly entertained by a story I already knew well. The venue was pretty nice plenty of bathrooms, though there are still huge lines, and a few places to grab a drink or some food. Traffic leaving is... More

I attended Wolf Trap on Friday to see Gentleman's Rule and Under the Streetlamp. The perfect weather made a perfect backdrop to a national treasure with good music enjoyed by all. It had been a while since I had been to Wolf Trap and sitting there, enjoying the music made me realize how special the venue is. It is nice... More

Note: Wolf Trap is comprised of several venues/areas, all wonderful, but most folks concentrate mainly on the Filene Center which has spring/summer open air concerts with lawn seating and indoor, but still open air, seating; and the Barns (Winter small indoor concerts). There are also many workshops, festivals, outdoor areas and tiny stages, etc. This review is primarily about the... More

The landscaping and maintenance of Wolftrap cannot be compared in the area. Sit on the lawn or go for a seat inside....either is a great experience. Parking is a nightmare for sold out events but that would be my only limited negative.

Best outdoor venue around. Easy to get into and out of. I've been there many times and have always enjoyed. Whether the lawn or indoor seats it's always a lot of fun. Beautiful surroundings.

I have been coming to Wolf Trap for several years for great shows which are performed outdoors during the Summer months. My boyfriend and I saw many famous singers/bands and always enjoyed this venue. The grounds are nicely landscaped, at all times, and very well-maintained. The atmosphere was relaxing for us. I am especially glad I finally got to see... More

I've been going to WolfTrap for over 20 years. This is a premier place to go for anyone/everyone and one of the only National Parks that allows you to bring in your own alcohol and food. I already have 4 concerts lined up for 2014. Don't miss this place - great entertainers, intimate yet fabulous acoustics!
