Music in the Park

Summer is full swing, and nothing says this more than the annual Summer Performances at Lubber Run Amphitheater. If there is one thing that we love about living along the Orange Line, it is the incredible live music and entertainment we get to enjoy around Arlington. The annual Summer Performances at Lubber Run this year are even better than before with five new dates added, carrying over the music series into September. There is a wide variety of music just waiting for you to enjoy with family friends. All the performances are free, and most are family friendly. It is tradition to bring a picnic dinner, a blanket or lawn chairs, and kick back for a great evening of live performances.

There will be a total of 34 nights of entertainment this season, beginning Friday, June 12th and going through Saturday, September 19th. Most performances are held on the weekends, but early on in the season there will be a performance on Monday, June 15th with the Metropolitan Chorus. There are two Wednesday shows on June 17th and on the 24th featuring the Potomac Harmony Chorus and the Arlingtones respectively. The entire list of dates and performers can be viewed at the Arlington Arts Website. Most performances begin at 8:00 pm, except for Sunday shows, which begin at 6:00 pm, and a few day time shows in September.

There is more than just music to enjoy during the Summer Performances at Lubber Run Amphitheater. The opening show will be a family friendly dance performance by Bowen McCauley Dance. The Lean and Hungry Theater presents the Adventures of Alice in Wonderland on Sunday June 14th. And for a bit of Shakespeare, be sure to check out the Traveling Players in All’s Well that Ends Well on July 24th. Some musical highlights include La Unica, an eclectic band full of roots folk and Latin rhythm on June 13th, an Acapella festival on July 11th, and a special daytime performance on September 19th by Rocknocerous, a band for the whole family.

Lubber Run amphitheater and park is located just over a mile away from the Ballston Metro station, situated between Arlington Blvd. and Custis Parkway. This is a wonderful park where you can grill or picnic, cool off in a stream, and let the kids play all day. The amphitheater is just the place to come and enjoy an evening of entertainment throughout the summer. When you are ready for a night out, this will be sure to fit the bill.
