Carter Barron Amphitheatre


Carter Barron Amphitheatre Closed for Repairs

As the result of a recent structural assessment, the National Park Service has determined that the Carter Barron Amphitheatre stage has structural deficiencies and cannot safely support the weight of performances. This means there will not be concerts or other performances at the Carter Barron this summer.

We know how much the community loves the Carter Barron, and we are working to get it back in action as soon as possible. We invite you to join us for concerts at Fort Dupont Park’s Summer Theatre while we address this important safety issue.

We will continue to share information as we have it. Updates will be posted here on our website.
