Jazz in the Garden Runs Through Aug. 29
Jazz in the Garden, the National Gallery of Art’s beloved summer tradition, features weekly performances through Aug. 29. The free concert series features an array of jazz artists performing a range of styles—from swing to progressive to Latin—every Friday evening from 5 to 8:30 p.m. at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden, rain or shine.
The relaxed garden setting, coupled with the friendly cultural atmosphere, has made this event a favorite Friday after-work destination for Washingtonians for years. Musicians perform in front of the Pavilion Café while visitors sit around the grand central fountain or relax on a blanket on the beautifully landscaped grounds. Guests may indulge in the Pavilion Café’s food and beverages or bring their own picnics. Alcohol is not allowed into the park but you can purchase it there.
When: 5-8:30 p.m. Fridays through Aug. 29
Where: Sculpture Garden
