Stop by The Parks at Walter Reed for Dozens of Upcoming Outdoor Events

This summer, The Parks at Walter Reed is coming alive.

The walkable urban neighborhood, once a military medical campus, in Northwest D.C. is hosting dozens of events on its historic Great Lawn, a six-acre green space with a natural amphitheater shape.

Stop by for live theater, film showings, fitness classes, festivals, markets, kids’ performances and more. Plus, you’ll soon find a brand-new dog park and public playground (opening Aug. 1 with celebratory popsicles at 4:30 p.m.!).

A few upcoming highlights worth adding to your calendar include:

  • Jazz in The Parks, Aug. 1, Aug. 21 and Sept. 18
    Children’s performers take the stage at 5:30 p.m. with the headliner following at 6 p.m. Bring a picnic, blanket and drinks, and grab food at your favorite food trucks.
  • FRESHFARM Market, Aug. 1 to Oct. 17
    Stop by each Sunday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to stock up on fresh produce and local goods.
  • Movies on the Lawn, Aug. 21, Sept. 11 and Oct. 2
    Bring chairs, picnics and popcorn (blankets provided!). The family-friendly lineup kicks off with “Get On Up” on Aug. 21.
  • Down in the Reeds, Oct. 9
    This music festival has a full line-up and is complete with local brews, artisanal vendors and more.
