Live From The Strathmore Lawn Outdoor Concerts
Lhomme Cirque At Strathmore With Music Center In The Distance

Strathmore’s 16-acre campus has plenty of green space, a sculpture garden, walking paths, and more. It’s a beautiful place for a wedding, festival, or photo session.

Every summer, Strathmore welcomes thousands of our neighbors for free outdoor concerts at our Gazebo stage for our Live from the Lawn series. Other noteworthy outdoor events have included L'homme Cirque: The One Man Circus in 2019, Monuments: Creative Forces in 2020, and years of summer film festivals in partnership with NIH.
