From salsa to strings, and blues to swing, Live! Concert Series on the Plaza features hot entertainment in a cool, open-air atmosphere.

From July 31 through September 29, noon – 1:00pm, enjoy free lunchtime performances featuring world-renowned entertainers in a variety of flavors, such as reggae, country, Latin jazz, Go-Go and mariachi. There is plenty of outdoor seating so take the Metro, grab lunch from 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.
