Fort Reno is located across the street from Woodrow Wilson High School. Directions are available here from Google Maps.
Fort Reno concerts are entirely volunteer-run at all levels. If you have the time and the inclination, and want to give a little love back, please contact Amanda for more information.
Bands who play at Fort Reno submit demo packages each spring usually in February. Once the concerts begin we generally have all the bands we need. However, you can contact Amanda with any questions.

As everyone knows, the concert series has incurred some unexpected costs this year. The support all of you showed during the past weeks has kept our eyes on the prize…the concerts. Besides being a tradition at this point, the Fort Reno concerts are an important community building event. And in order to keep it going this year and in the future, we are asking you to please consider giving a donation that is comfortable for you.
What might not be known is this: the concert series is almost entirely volunteer. Until this year, the only paid aspects of the event were the portable bathrooms and the sound. Additionally, the concerts run totally on donations, there is no sponsor nor any grants or government funding. For the concert series, “free” has many definitions. Our aim is to provide a free space where parents can bring their children of all ages to enjoy music, blossoming musicians can gain experience playing for an audience and those who work to create the Washington, DC music scene can be free to create.
The concert series has been granted fiscal sponsorship through a terrific local non-profit organization called The Washington Peace Center. What this means is that since we are not in a position to be classified as a non-profit, we can run our donations through them and you can receive donation receipts for your tax purposes.
If you use the PayPal link, you will need to indicate that your donation is for The Fort Reno Summer Concert Series. If you prefer to use a check or money order, please make them payable to The Washington Peace Center and in the memo write: Fort Reno Summer Concert Series. You can mail them to:

Whichever method you choose, please remember that any amount is helpful. And appreciated more than typed words can express. Even if you can’t offer any financial support at this time…please continue to support the bands and the concerts by coming out on Mondays and Thursdays. You are really important to the why we do this.
