The free public events are an annual celebration that brings together Washington metropolitan area residents and communities across generations to enjoy incredible music from national, regional and local artists to perform live in the park’s outdoor amphitheater. The National Park Service continues to honor the series’ tradition, bringing together neighbors, families, and organizations together for the culture, for the community, for the connection.
This year visitors will enjoy traveling on new roads throughout Fort Dupont Park. The improvement follows a resurfacing project began in fall 2018 and ended in spring 2019. Take a look at photos highlighting this change for the better at go.nps.gov/fortdrs.
