Jazz in the Garden

The classic, beloved DC summer concert series Jazz in the Garden is back and bringing jazz, Latin, bluegrass sounds to the Sculpture Garden (Constitution Ave and 7th St. NW) every Friday all summer long.

The concerts will take place outdoors from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This year’s line up includes:

  • Friday June 2: Tobago Bay
  • Friday June 9: Chelsey Green and The Green Project
  • Friday June 16: The Muneer Nasser Quintet
  • Friday June 23: Nathan and the Zydeco Cha Chas

  • Friday July 14: Ultrafaux Ensemble with Hot Club of Baltimore
  • Friday July 21: DuPont Brass
  • Friday July 28: The 8 Ohms Band

Due to high demand, the National Gallery of Art has implemented a lottery system for tickets to Jazz in the Garden. Each concert will have a separate lottery which will open Monday at 10 a.m. and close Friday at noon. Results of the lottery will be announced via email the Monday prior to each concert at 10 a.m.

In addition to the lottery system, a limited number of passes will also be available at all entrance gates starting at 5 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.

Registration is required to attend and all guests over the age of 2 must have a reservation. Attendees can reserve up to four passes per reservation.
