Millennium Stage returns this summer with a series of free outdoor performance experiences curated by artists and organizations from around the DMV, running Thursdays to Saturdays from May 27 to Oct. 2.

Millennium Stage returns with a summer marking the societal emergence from the pandemic and the return of live performance with weekly, free, outdoor performance experiences curated by artists and organizations from around the DMV.

Thursday to Saturday, audiences will be welcomed in to enjoy films, live performances, arts vendors, dance and yoga lessons on The REACH plaza (2700 F St. NW), with great food and drinks from Victura Park.

These events will safely welcome the public back to the Kennedy Center to enjoy a showcase of the city’s incredible artists and to celebrate the legacy, vibrancy, and vitality of our communities.

SAMASAMA is ecstatic to partner with The Kennedy Center for the re-opening weekend of The REACH. SAMASAMA, inspired by the literal Tagalog meaning “all together”, celebrates Asian American Pacific Islander narratives and heritage through art and community.

Founded in 2016, SAMASAMA has grown from a collective art show to developing programs and events that push boundaries through art, food, and conversation and that develop a greater understanding between all communities. Join us for an enriching and uplifting reopening weekend filled with multicultural programs for all generations.
