Agenda: Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage Celebrates Its 20th Anniversary This Sunday


The Kennedy Center‘s Millennium Stage is without a doubt one of the best spots to see live music in D.C. It’s also the only place in the city (and in the entire U.S.) where you can see a free show every single day of the year. For the last 20 years, the Millennium Stage has been an important asset to D.C.’s music scene, and to celebrate its anniversary the Kennedy Center plans to host a big birthday bash this Sunday.

The music lineup, like the Millennium Stage’s programming, features a diverse slate of acts from all around the country. D.C. Celtic band Scythian and New Orleans’ funk band Big Sam’s Funky Nation will helm the celebration, which starts at 5 p.m. Besides getting half-priced drinks during happy hour and securing a good seat for the show, there’s another incentive for getting there early–the first 1,000 people through the door will get a special Millennium Stage commemorative shirt.

In keeping with tradition, this show is free. It’s a great way to enjoy a lazy Sunday, so get out to Kennedy Center and say happy birthday to the Millennium Stage.

Millennium Stage’s birthday party will take place at the Kennedy Center’s Grand Foyer. Show is free and starts at 5 p.m. The Kennedy Center is located at 2700 F St NW, Washington, DC 20566.
