  • New for Filene Center Performances 2014: Cooler inspections and size limits

    All picnic baskets and coolers, regardless of size, will be inspected when entering. No container may be larger than 48 qts or 15” x 15” x 22”. As always, packages, bags, and other containers are subject to inspection. Please allow a little extra time.

Where To Eat

Dining Options
Ovations Restaurant and a picnic caterer offer a selection of food choices before Filene Center Performances. Concession stands are also open at the plaza area at Filene Center performances. These services are not available for Children's Theatre-in-the-Woods performances, nor during the non-performance season.

Picnic in the Park
Pack your own picnic and find a spot in the park. Picnic tables are available throughout the park. Some are located near Wolf Trap Run, a small creek which flows through the park, and most tables are located in partly-shaded areas. Tables are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Keep in mind that no grilling or open flame is permitted in the park, nor are grills provided. We ask groups of 25 or more people to contact the park at (703) 255-1827.

If you have tickets for a Filene Center performance, picnics are also allowed on the lawn seating area of the Filene Center.
