Concerts and Festivals

There are a number of top-notch concerts and festivals to take the family to in Washington, DC every summer. You can head to the nearby Mall for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in late June, and catch iconic acts like The Eagles, James Taylor, Zac Brown Band, Cher, Beyonce, and Jay Z this summer as well.
