Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts
Wolf Trap National Park spans 130.28 total gross acres, of which 12. 39 acres are in a scenic easement.
Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is open to the public from 7:00 a.m. to dusk every day with the exception of Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Even if there is no performance taking place, the park is still open for your enjoyment!
During the performance season, the park is closed for non-performance recreation from 2 hours prior to show time until one hour after the show concludes. The park is closed from dusk to 7:00 a.m., except to patrons attending authorized events.
While Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts is primarily known for its live performances during the summer, the park is open to the public year-round. Backstage tours and other interpretive programs are offered throughout the off-season. The park is an excellent location for picnicking and quiet reflection, as well as hiking on over 2 miles of scenic hiking trails.
Pets, except for service animals, are prohibited in the Filene Center, at the Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods, in picnic areas, and in any area of the park being utilized for an authorized event. Pets are permitted elsewhere in the park, but must be restrained on a leash of no more than six feet in length. Pet owners/handlers are responsible for removing pet excrement.
