To keep everyone safe at The Barns at Wolf Trap, our indoor concert venue, Wolf Trap Foundation requires that everyone, including fully vaccinated individuals, wear masks and provide verification of full vaccination upon entry to the venue. For those who are unvaccinated, proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours of the performance is required.

Mask Requirement

  • All staff, volunteers, and visitors will wear face masks inside The Barns, including during performances, unless they are actively eating and drinking. Only performers may be unmasked.
  • Facial masks should fit snugly and should fully cover your nose, mouth and chin. Masks with a valve, gaiters, and scarves are not permitted.
  • Masks will be provided to patrons who arrive without one or are wearing a mask that does not meet Wolf Trap requirements.

Vaccination Requirement

  • All patrons regardless of age who visit The Barns at Wolf Trap and/or attend performances must be fully vaccinated by the date of their visit. Verification of vaccination must be provided prior to each performance by either paper or electronic documentation (including photo of card). “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date must be at least 14 days after the second dose of a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or at least 14 days after a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
  • Wolf Trap will accept proof of vaccination against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or by the World Health Organization (WHO).
  • Patrons may bring a physical copy of their vaccine card, a photo on a phone, or a printout from your medical provider or state's vaccine registry. The vaccine registries for D.C., Maryland and Virginia are listed below:
  • If you are unable to be vaccinated, you may provide proof of a Rapid COVID-19 antigen test taken within 48 hours of the performance prior to entering The Barns at Wolf Trap. Rapid COVID-19 Antigen tests are available at CVS MinuteClinics throughout the DMV area, and most urgent care sites. Please note that these generally require an appointment in advance. At-home tests will not be accepted.

Health and Safety

  • Patrons who are feeling ill are asked to please stay home and utilize Wolf Trap’s ticket exchange options.
