If you’re going to a Sunday show, skip the overpriced lot and find street parking, which is free. Some street spots are also free on Saturdays - just read the signs. There’s also a less expensive lot directly across the right side of the center, just off rock creek parkway.

Avoid paying high parking price at KenCen.Instead park at Wayergate 600 New Hampshire ave..almost at the end of that block.Use an app like Spot Hero and pay < $9!!
Come From Away

avoid parking in the KenCen. You can find parking on the street or go to Spot Hero to reserve a spot in the Watergate parking lot for less than 8 dollars.
The Band’s Visit
Street parking in the neighborhood nearby. You don't have to park in a garage.
For lunch before a Saturday matinee, Campono just across the street offers cafeteria style subs, pizza, etc. Nothing fancy, but good food and good prices - the show is the splurge.
For anyone who has not been to the Kennedy Center, be forewarned that the food and drink prices are outrageous. They're up to $17.50 now for a glass of mediocre sparkling wine.
Take the shuttle from Foggy Bottom. best way to get to the Kennedy Center and it is free.
I wore elegant cloths! it was New Years at the Kennedy Center, so we stayed after the show for the count down..
Park near GWU Hospital and catch the free shuttle at the GWU metro stop
Debbie Allen’s Freeze Frame
Parking at the Kennedy Center is disrupted by new construction. The former entry is closed, and the former exits now provide the only entrances as well.
Pre-theater casual dinner at Campono was great! Quick, inexpensive, delicious food.
Park next door to Kennedy Center for just $12 or $13 - two parking garages available.
