The Kennedy Center is hosting a free multiweek festival for the grand opening of its new campus expansion, The REACH.
There will be nearly 500 events Sept. 7–22 that will include everything from musical and comedy performances to panel discussions, dance parties, instructional workshops and outdoor screenings of movies and opera performances.
To attend the festival, free timed-entry passes are required. You can find pass information and a complete lineup of events on the Kennedy Center’s website.
Parking nearby or on site can cost more than $20. A free shuttle runs to the campus from the Foggy Bottom Metro station; it’s a short walk along New Hampshire Avenue.
Pedestrians and cyclists have access to the campus via the pedestrian bridge that connects to the path along the Potomac River. There’s also a path that can be used to access the campus from the D.C. side of the Theodore Roosevelt Bridge.
