The Jazz in the Garden Series, a popular summer event, is a free concert series featuring an array of jazz artists performing a wide variety of styles--including salsa, blusion, vibraphone and Afrofunk. The concerts are held every Friday from May 25 through August 31, 5 pm to 8:30 pm at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden.
Food and beverages are available for purchase from the Pavilion Café and its carts located around the Garden and picnics are encouraged! Alcoholic beverages may not be brought to the premises from outside and are subject to confiscation. Security officers reserve the right to inspect all items brought into the Sculpture Garden. For the safety of visitors and works of art, access to the Sculpture Garden will be limited if the space becomes too crowded.
Concerts may be cancelled due to excessive heat or inclement weather.
