Even a thunderstorm couldn’t dampen Arlington’s resolve last Friday, with a full-capacity crowd present to hear blues singer-songwriter Chris Pierce at Lubber Run Amphitheater, reopening for the first time since its 50th Anniversary Season in 2019!
This coming weekend, Avant Bard presents a concert version of their hit “Gospel at Colonus” (Friday, July 16), and the Jogo Project brings their fusion of jazz and Go Go music (Saturday, July 17), followed by a family program by The Levine School of Music (Sunday, July 18).
Once the clouds lifted last Friday, Chris Pierce was welcomed to the stage by Arlington County Board Vice-Chair Katie Cristol and the Chair of the Arlington Commission on the Arts and Humanities Anika Kwinana. He then proceeded to weave his spell on the appreciative audience. With blue skies in evidence, even larger crowds continued through the opening weekend for performances.
The FREE events continue through Aug. 15, with concerts on Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. and family programming on Sundays at 11 a.m.
The summer continues with a mix of familiar names and Lubber Run debuts, including jazz vocalist Akua Allrich (Friday, July 23), reggae masters Nkula (Friday, July 30), the Colombian sounds of the all-female ensemble La Marvela (Friday, Aug 6) and the National Chamber Ensemble (Saturday, Aug. 14).
Since the construction of the first permanent stage in 1969, generations of Arlingtonians have enjoyed free summer cultural events at the sylvan venue nestled two blocks off Route 50, ranging from Arlington Children’s Theater to bands like Eddie from Ohio and superstar Ritchie Havens.
Admission to Lubber Run Amphitheater remains FREE. This Venue will refer to the Virginia Department of Health (VDA) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for preserving public health. Access to the venue is first come, first served and that may be restricted due to capacity. A face covering is recommended for all unvaccinated patrons. Those who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a face covering when outdoors. If you have COVID-19, are experiencing symptoms, know you have been exposed or are feeling sick, please stay home. We appreciate everyone’s cooperation to preserve the good health of our community.
The Lubber Run Amphitheater Summer Concert Series runs July 9 through August 15, 2021, on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. with 11:00 a.m. family-oriented programming on Sundays (run-times vary).
So bring a picnic, some friends and enjoy the arts at Lubber Run Amphitheater, located at 200 N. Columbus Street in Arlington (N. Columbus Street and 2nd Street N.).
While there is a small parking lot, there is abundant free street parking in the surrounding Arlington Forrest neighborhood.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
