The REACH Opening Festival at The Kennedy Center

September 7, 2019 - 1:00pm to September 22, 2019 - 1:00pm

Connection and celebration...exploration and dialogue...wonder and surprise.
Join the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for 16 days of “creativity in action” at the REACH — where nearly 500 events across their newly expanded campus, indoors and outdoors, are FREE!

Experience two vibrant weeks of performances and activities celebrating the new expansion of our campus called the REACH. These innovative indoor and outdoor spaces put YOU at the center of the art — where you can chart your own course and connect what moves you.

Every day of the festival offers something for everyone, with daily spotlights on special themes or art forms sprinkled throughout. No matter when you visit, you’ll find plenty of unique performances, interactive activities, insightful conversations, and other events that speak to your interests and pique your curiosity. Explore everything from classical, jazz, and electronica music to comedy, dance, theater, film, Hip Hop, indigenous cultures, and family fun!

Discover how the Kennedy Center is forging new ways for artists from near and far, community groups, and YOU to come together to create and share joyous and meaningful moments, learn from each other, and win hearts and minds through the power of the arts. See you at the REACH!
