Live! Performances on Woodrow Wilson Plaza

Live! Performances on Woodrow Wilson Plaza

From salsa to strings, and blues to swing, Live! Performances on Woodrow Wilson Plaza features hot entertainment in a cool, open-air atmosphere. 

All summer long, enjoy free lunchtime performances featuring world-renowned entertainers in a variety of flavors, such as African dance, Celtic folk, jazz violin, hip hop, Latin swing and pop rock. There is plenty of outdoor seating so take the Metro, grab lunch from Aria or the food court and spend the afternoon grooving.


Launched in 2000, the
series supports one of our building's missions to establish a pedestrian link between the National Mall and business district north of Pennsylvania Avenue, creating an open, active and inviting atmosphere.

Live! will be returning for another season. Enjoy performances Monday - Friday from June 17 - August 8, noon - 1:30pm on the Plaza. Check out the July and August performance schedule below or download it here:
