Enjoy sweeping views of Washington, D.C., while guest artists play patriotic music, jazz and pop on the Carillon's 50 bells. Meet on the lawn at the foot of the Carillon. Families with children are welcome.
There are few benches on the Carillon grounds, so bring your own blanket or folding chairs if you would like to sit. Sunshades and free-standing tents are allowed, but stakes are not, so prepare an alternate way to steady your tent in the wind.
The Carillon and U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial are part of the Trash Free Parks program. There are no trash cans nearby. If you plan to bring a picnic, make sure you bring a trash bag so that you can take your trash with you when you leave.
