The only national park dedicated to presenting the performing arts.

No matter what your age or taste in shows, you'll find something you like onstage at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts. From May through September, multiple amphitheaters in the park present performances such as musicals, dance, opera, jazz, and popular and country music.

A good time to explore the beauty and history of the park without the crowds is October - April.
