The Carter Barron Amphitheater: History, Present, and Future

The Carter Barron Amphitheater is a historical and cultural landmark located within Rock Creek Park in Washington, DC. From 1950 to 2017, the 4,200-seat outdoor amphitheater brought diverse communities together to celebrate the confluence of urban outdoors, nature, and the performing arts. As a federally-owned and operated venue, it was fully integrated in the 1950s, which was unique at a time when other concert venues were segregated.

Due to structural issues and long-term rehabilitation needs, the amphitheater has lain dormant for the past 5 years. Join us for a virtual presentation that will explore the past, present, and future of the Amphitheater and hear from Tony Richardson about the ongoing efforts to support the National Park Service in reopening this iconic venue and ways that the community can get involved.

Tony Richardson is the Senior Manager of Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives at the Rock Creek Conservancy. In this role, he leads efforts to increase awareness, engagement, access, and stewardship throughout Rock Creek Park.
