There is no better place to see a concert than Wolf Trap. The lawn is great! I really have no words to add because it’s good. Just patience for entry and exit - same for any venue

We came down for the Bernstein at 100 Birthday celebration. Amazing acoustics for a partially outdoor space. Marvelous talent and well managed sight lines. I would gladly go back again.

Not sure about a buffet but you can picknick on the grass. Try to get there early for a good spot. Ps- bring your own adult beverages as theirs cost a fortune!
