For anyone lucky enough to live in Northern Virginia and within a reasonable distance of the Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, please make it a priority to pick a concert or a show to attend this summer and GO!
We went to see Earth, Wind & Fire last night with some good friends. The show was spectacular, the park was beautiful and the location cannot be beat if you live in Northern Virginia--or even metropolitan Maryland or DC!
Many concert-goers opt to purchase the more affordable lawn tickets and have a picnic while enjoying the music. If you go this route, be sure to get there early; the lawn fills quickly and can be quite crowded. Low beach chairs are allowed, as are blankets, coolers and picnic baskets.
If you prefer to sit in a seat and have reserved seating, buy your tickets early. Some people do both--arrive early and picnic and then move inside for the concert. Just remember that coolers and picnic baskets are not allowed into the reserved seating area.
We had our dinner at home and arrived at Wolftrap in time for a drink before the concert.
Dress is casual since you will have to walk from your car. The park provides transportation from the far parking lots, but there is often a line. If you are sitting on the lawn, women should stick with pants or shorts since the lawn is on a hill and it is very hard to sit gracefully.
