about Wolf Trap:
America's only National Park dedicated to the performing Arts offers hundreds of performances in season, including family shows at the renowned Children's Theatre-in-the-Woods (TitW). Amidst 117 rolling wooded acres and nestled in a shady grove, the stage is set for lively adventures in music, dance, storytelling, puppetry, and theater.
The park is open for picnicking during daylight hours. The Filene Center gates and lawn open 90 minutes prior to each performance (60 minutes for Jazz & Blues Festival and International Children's Festival matinees). The in-house seating area opens 30 minutes prior to each performance. Parking is free but limited, so arrive early.
The Center for Education at Wolf Trap also features master classes, performances, distance learning, performing arts classes, and workshops taught by internationally acclaimed Wolf Trap Teaching Artists for participants of all ages.
For most performances, everyone, including children of all ages, needs a ticket - no exceptions, even for babes-in-arms. The only performance where children under three are permitted in for free is the International Children's Festival.
