Filene Center: Start time varies for each performance, but Park gates typically open 90 minutes prior to show time (unless otherwise noted on a performance page), at which time all patrons are admitted into the Park and may select a spot on the lawn. Because lawn area seating is ‘first come, first served’ patrons often line up at the gates prior to opening in order to get their preferred spot. Patrons with reserved (in-house) seating can access their assigned seats when the house opens starting 30 minutes before the show.
The Barns at Wolf Trap:
The Barns' lobby and bar, which serves artisanal starters, handcrafted flatbreads, desserts, and more, plus a wide variety of beverages, opens 90 minutes prior to show time. The doors to the theater open 30 minutes before the show. View The Barns’ at Wolf Trap menu
Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods: The general admission theater opens at 10 AM and performances start at 10:30 AM.
