    Carter Barron Ampitheater

    4850 Colorado Ave
    Concerts/shows only late spring–early fall. Free-$30. This has got to be the most fun, most beloved concert venue in D.C.—a big open air amphitheater off in the woods. What legendary performers haven't performed here? Stevie Wonder, Bruce Springsteen, Louis Armstrong, Andy Williams, Ella Fitzgerald, BB King, the National Symphony Orchestra, Nat King Cole, Peter Paul & Mary, and Kool and the Gang have all been here. Several big local festivals call this place home, notably the great, free annual Blues Festival. It was most famously host to the Shakespeare in the Park festival in late summer, until the Shakespeare Theatre Company opted to move the festival to their new building downtown. This is must lamented by locals, as watching Hamlet, for example, deliver his soliloquy in the dark night under the stars, surrounded by the rich natural sounds of Rock Creek Park, is a one of a kind experience, and the festival was considered a requisite Washingtonian event.
