Picnic on the lawn

At the Filene Center

A rare accommodation for any concert venue, Wolf Trap lets you bring your own food and drinks (alcohol is okay, but no kegs) to enjoy on the lawn during shows.

Don’t feel like preparing something yourself? Enjoy Wolf Trap’s restaurant, concessions, or picnic caterer.

Filene Center Restaurant

Dine onsite at OVATIONS by America Eats, presented by José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup. Concertgoers will enjoy a scenic view of the green meadow and the Filene Center at Wolf Trap while dining on American classics from Chef José Andrés' lauded America Eats Tavern. America Eats Tavern is known for serving up American Classics, celebrating local and regional flavors inspired by some of the country's most historic dishes and drinks. Make a reservation.
