“Dear PoPville,

The Carter Barron schedule for 2016 has been released. Looks like the format has changed – no more all-free events, instead weekly concerts benefiting Carter Barron and Rock Creek Park trails. Given how underutilized the Amphitheater has been in recent years (was told by park rangers it was due to sequestration), it’s probably a change for the better.

Shows at the Carter Barron Amphitheatre:

7/30 Darryl Haley presents ROCK THE CITY, a benefit concert in support of Carter Barron Amphitheatre & Rock Creek Park trails (7 – 10 p.m.)

8/6 ROCK THE CITY benefit concert (7 – 10 p.m.)

8/13 ROCK THE CITY benefit concert (7 – 10 p.m.)

8/20 ROCK THE CITY benefit concert (7 – 10 p.m.)

8/25 Joint Service Jazz: Celebrate the National Park Service Centennial with the U.S. Army Blues, U. S. Navy Commodores and U.S. Air Force Airmen of Note (7 – 10 p.m.)

8/26 Movie Night (starts at dusk)

8/27 Movie Night (starts at dusk)

9/3 DC Blues Society presents DC Blues Festival (noon to 7:30 p.m.)

9/10 ROCK THE CITY benefit concert (7 – 10 p.m.)

9/24 ROCK THE CITY benefit concert (7 – 10 p.m.)

    Glad to see a full schedule even if the shows aren’t free. this space is beautiful and perfect on a summer night.

    I have no problem with them charging if it means more concerts. The amphitheater is way under used. BUT, $25 a ticket seems way too high. I bet they end up with lots of empty seats.

    • majka

      Agreed, would probably see much more volume at $15 price point

  • anon

    it would be nice to know who is actually performing…seems like critical information if you are promoting events.
