Washington area’s premier summer venue will bring music, fun to community events around the region and host events prior to performances at the Filene Center
Vienna, Virginia (May 5, 2015) — Washingtonians know Wolf Trap as the premier summer destination for outdoor music, picnics and pure fun. Now, Wolf Trap will bring that same spirit of summer to community events across the region, through partnerships with the Northern Virginia Fine Arts Festival in Reston, Picnic in the Park at Farragut Fridays, Capitol Riverfront Movie Series, and NoMa Summer Screen. Most events are free and open to the public; the full schedule is below. Continue to check in at www.wolftrap.org as additional events are added. Schedule subject to change.
Wolf Trap’s “offsite events” will feature music, food trucks or concession options, lawn games, and chances to win tickets to performances at the Filene Center. These series of community events bring the Wolf Trap experience into other communities and enhance audiences’ enjoyment of Wolf Trap performances. In addition, prior to select performances at the Filene Center, Wolf Trap will host events and activities as part of its continuing young professionals programming. For more information about these events, visit www.wolftrap.org/youngpro.
