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 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.

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.

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.
