“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

if you can go to a performance here, go. It's a beautiful building. And holds much history as far as performers and who has attended.

“Free Shows!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

As a local, I have been the JFK Center for all sorts of different events, but my favorite are the free shows they offer Monday thru Friday @ 6PM. You just can't beat it when you factor in the venue with it fancy digs and killer view off the JFK center terrace. A must do!

“Great for every venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014

The Kennedy center has always been a great place for all concerts and shows. Easy to get to right off of rt. 66 and ample parking in the garage there is no excuse not to come. There is also a summer concert series that is free to the public. During intermissions there is a nice patio out back with a great view of the waterfront in Georgetown.
