  • Parking lot opens at 7:00 p.m. and movies begin promptly at 8:30 p.m. Parking lot access will close at 8:15 p.m. so we encourage early arrival.

  • Once parked, you must remain in your vehicle or in your vehicle’s designated picnic space, unless going to or from the restrooms.
  • If you want to park next to a friend, please coordinate your arrival at the park at the same time to have the best chance of parking next to each other.
  • Oversized vehicles will be directed to the back rows.
  • Please turn off all vehicle lights (Headlights, Running Lights, Automatic Lights etc.) when in the parking lot.

  • Wolf Trap’s Drive-Ins are weather-permitting and subject to cancellation in the event of inclement weather or forecasted inclement weather. Updates will be provided to ticket buyers via email, the Wolf Trap website, and Facebook events by 5 p.m. on the event day if cancelled, along with refund options.
  • Sound for all movies will be broadcast via FM radio station (call number will be provided onsite). Tune in through your car’s FM radio, or bring a portable radio if you plan to sit outside of your vehicle. You may use your vehicle’s Accessory Mode, the ignition position that allows use of the radio and some electrical accessories when the engine is off. Idling of vehicle engines is prohibited in national parks. Closed captioning is provided for all movies.
  • You are welcome to bring your own picnic, as well as small chairs if you plan to sit within the designated picnic space outside of your vehicle. Outside food must be brought into the Drive-In inside your car; no external deliveries (such as Uber Eats, pizza delivery, etc.) are allowed. No grilling, cooking, or fires are allowed on premises.
  • If you ordered a Movie Pack for 2 or Wolfie Kids Pack, your order will be available for pick-up at the Concessions Tent after your vehicle is parked.
  • Please #RecreateResponsibly and remove any trash or debris from your picnics and dispose of trash at home. 
  • All parking spaces have been designed for appropriate social distancing in accordance with state guidelines. If you decide to set up chairs outside your vehicle, please do so only on the passenger side of the vehicle. This will help facilitate appropriate distancing between parties.
