Summer Evening Event at the Arboretum

Music In The Meadow With Mark G. Meadows And Somethin’ Good

Thursday, July 23 • 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

Come and picnic at the Arboretum; bring a blanket and your supper and relax on the lawn below the National Herb Garden. Award-winning jazz musician Mark G. Meadows and his quartet will perform. Free to Friends Of the National Arboretum members; $5 per person for non-members; children under 12 are free. Space is limited; reservations required.

The Arboretum is a beautiful place to relax in DC and an even better time to do it is in the evening on the lawn below the Capitol Columns, so join us for some great jazz. Check out Mark’s music here, pack a picnic, and grab your lawn chairs and come on by! The U.S. National Arboretum is located at 2400 R Street, NE Washington, DC 20002.
