Good news for Fort Reno fans:

“Hello everyone.

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:

The Washington Peace Center
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.

    I grew up 2 blocks from Ft Reno and it holds a special place in my heart. Its family friendly, fun, and a great neighborhood tradition. If you’ve never been, grab a blanket and some food and come and watch some live music.

      I grew up nearby and love these shows as well, but I’m so confused about the organization lately. Why did the organizer allow an entire thinkpiece assuming its cancellation run in Washingtonian without responding to their request for comment if she was working on this announcement the whole time? Did she forget until the piece ran?

        It seems like every summer lately, there’s some unnecessary, preventable drama surrounding Ft. Reno.
