I have traveled to most all of the National Parks in America, so people often ask me which is my favorite. When I say, "Wolf Trap", they are surprised - most people don't know that it as National Park. The setting is spectacular, the ambiance...More

I visited the Wolf Trap several times this year and was satisfied at watching several performing artists from the lawns at Affordable prices. A great place to relax and enjoy and evening of fun and frolic.

You can't beat WT if you are in the area for a fun evening concert! The lawn seats are great for those who want to picnic or you have the choice of buying under the canopy seats. We've done the Memorial Day concert many years...More

1st row balcony center seats are the best - less crowed and more comfortable, roomy than orchestra seats.

This is a beautiful venue set among the woods. Getting dropped off and picked up by a friend was pretty easy. You can BYOB, so we brought a cooler full of wine, beer and snacks. We had planned to sit on the lawn, but got...More

My experience with Wolf Trap is only with the Filene Center which is a beautiful ampitheatre. However, I attended a sold out showing which entirely too many lawn tickets are sold. They probably sell 1 ticket per square foot of grass at the venue. People...More

Attended concert at Filene Center, Wolf Trap. Was very impressed with the facilities, the staff, the venue, free parking, and the list goes on and on. Have been to many amphitheaters in the northeast and this was by far the best experience. Can't wait to...More

While Wolf Trap is more than the Filene Center, its centerpiece open air (though covered for the most part) performance space, I will focus on this gem. We have seen a number of outstanding performances there and while we generally get seats in the covered...More

Not sure about a buffet but you can picknick on the grass. Try to get there early for a good spot. Ps- bring your own adult beverages as theirs cost a fortune!

We have not had any issue with mosquitoes, but perhaps take repellant, just in case. It is wonderful there, that noone judges your attire. You can go casual as you like or dress up. You see a little of both. I do suggest... More
