Good news for Fort Reno fans:
Things are moving along in preparation for the coming summer. Here is hoping that we are getting all the rain out of the way now!
Many of you have written about playing this year. I have done my best to keep track of the emails but Gmail sometimes has a mind of its own so feel free to get back in touch. Submissions can be mailed or dropped off between now and May 31. If you have any difficulty with getting in a physical demo package, let me know.

Shows will be happening in July once again this year and as always on Mondays and Thursdays. Music is 7 to 9:30 PM but the park is open for folks to be present for the pre-show festivities which will include cleaning the park and loading gear; the perfect backdrop for your dining experience.
With the construction of this year’s schedule comes the reality that to ensure shows for next year, it’s time to encourage lovers of the concert series to donate. Tax deductible donations can be made through our fiscal sponsor The Washington Peace Center. They are a terrific organization; take a gander at their website www.washingtonpeacecenter.org and check out all the projects and organizations they inspire and support.
Make checks payable to The Washington Peace Center with Fort Reno Concerts in the memo and mail them to:

1525 Newton Street NW
Washington, DC 20010
The Peace Center also provides us with a PayPal portal. Be sure to choose Fort Reno Concert Series as the recipient of the donation.
