Feb 14, 2019

Believe it or not, Filene Center summer shows go on sale Saturday, February 23 at 10 am!

Fans come from miles around to line up and score the best possible seats for their favorite shows – and skip the service fees! The day kicks off at 10 am, when Bernie (Wolf Trap’s Senior Director of Ticket Services) opens the windows for the first patrons. And this year we’re doing it all a whole month early! So, how should you prepare for the great on-sale extravaganza?

Here are five helpful tips:

Don’t Get Hangry!

SnacksYou wouldn’t come to a Wolf Trap show without fully-stocked picnic provisions, nor should you come to buy tickets without a bevy of snacks and sippables! Start your morning right with a cup of hot coffee, courtesy of Peet’s Coffee, available on site at 8:30 am.* Also, load up on your favorite drinks and munchies to make your experience as yummy as possible.

Dress Warm

winter clothesWe all know that the DC-area weather can be fickle in February, so make sure you wear your fluffiest hats, snuggest gloves, and coziest coats – just in case Old Man Winter is still hanging around.
