Find Your Seat

Wolf Trap’s ushers are here to help! Share your ticket with any usher and they’ll be happy to direct you to your seat. 

Lawn Seats

Once the gates open, patrons may enter the Park and select a "first come, first served" spot on the lawn. 

You can bring blankets, tarps, or cushioned seats (available for rent at the Gift Shop) for the lawn. Keep in mind that chairs are only allowed in the designated area on the back of the lawn.

In-House Seats

Patrons with reserved, covered (in-house and Loge) seating can access their assigned seats when the interior of the Filene Center opens starting 30 minutes before the show.

Guests are welcome to bring bottled water into the Filene Center. All other beverages must be in a Wolf Trap Cup with a lid, which can be purchased from Concessions and the Gift Shop.
