Exciting performances, picnics, and a beautiful setting are just part of your experience at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. Through the cooperative effort and partnership of the National Park Service and the Wolf Trap Foundation, you can enjoy music, dance, and a variety of performances throughout the year. Together, they offer festivals in the park and performances in the summer at the Filene Center. The National Park Service (NPS) operates the park and keeps it active all year with backstage tours, interpretive activities, educational programs, and the annual Holiday Sing-a-Long program.
Outside of the performance season, the park is open to the public from 7:00 a.m. to dusk every day with the exception of New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day when the park is closed. During the performance season, the park is closed to public visitation which is not performance related during park festivals and Filene Center performances to avoid conflict among visitor use activities. This restriction begins two hours prior to show times and ends one hour after performances have completed. The park is closed from dusk to 7:00 a.m. except to patrons and authorized participants attending authorized events.
