Why We Like This Place

  • Long renowned as one of the premier performing arts centers in the country, Wolf Trap is also home to historic barns that host weddings and special events. Located just 30 minutes outside Washington, D.C., the venue offers both a natural setting and modern amenities, like a service kitchen & bar and dressing room facilities, plus parking.
  • The two barns, originally built in the 1700s, are joined under one roof and provide 3,800 square feet of indoor entertaining space that features wooden interiors, large windows, and a performance stage.
  • The flexible Education Hall can accommodate up to 300 seated guests, but is easily divided into 4 sections with air walls for smaller events. In addition to floor-to-ceiling windows and natural wood and stone details, it affords a view of the scenic woods and opens to a terrace that's ideal for a small ceremony or cocktail reception.
