Amazing night at the Barns, sold out yet small crowd. No problem parking. The musicians were sensational. The acoustics in a 1700 barn were just as the musicians intent. Well worth it!!!

This is a wonderful concert venue, both the Filene Center in the summer and The Barns in winter. In good weather come early and stroll the grounds.Buy a picnic dinner or pack a cooler and get lawn tickets. Highly recommended!

A venue can't always control the quality of the performance, but they can look for acts that fit and provide sound that works with sight lines that allow everyone to experience the event. The Barns at Wolf Trap did that exceedingly well for the Masters...More

Not sure about a buffet but you can picknick on the grass. Try to get there early for a good spot. Ps- bring your own adult beverages as theirs cost a fortune!
