Wolf Trap Information

Located in Virginia, Wolf Trap combines cultural and natural resources for the community and nation to enjoy, including concerts.

Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts began as a gift to the American people from Catherine Filene Shouse. Encroaching roads and suburbs inspired Mrs. Shouse to preserve this former farm as a park. In 1966 Congress accepted Mrs. Shouse's gift and authorized Wolf Trap Farm Park (its original name).
