if you don't mind walking, you can park at the watergate, where the parking is cheaper.

The Kennedy Center website is incorrect, parking is $22 for events. There is parking near the Watergate for $10 if you don't mind a short walk.

I parked in the Kennedy Center garage, for $22 because I forgot my umbrella. Otherwise, street parking or watergate garage or metro / shuttle would have sufficed.

I've never had any issues taking the metro and shuttle. It's easy to find and use. Sometimes there is a little bit of a line at the end of a packed show, but they move quickly. Arriving early ensures you have a chance to walk around the Kennedy Center and enjoy the view before the show.

Ancora, across the street from the Kennedy Center has great service and great food, albeit a bit pricey.

Parking is $22 but very convient and safe. I've also noticed shuttles but don't have very much information on them.

The weather was sunny. I wore sun dress (and brought a cardigan for inside the theater).
