Explore the park. Discover the music. Immerse yourself in the experience.

This outdoor, in-person event is a multi-musician showcase that invites local musicians into the beautiful parklands of the Tregaron Conservancy. With simultaneous performances at four locations throughout the grounds of the conservancy, Tregaron Unplugged offers visitors an immersive experience where they can traverse the trails through the trees, discovering a variety of genres and artists as they explore. To match this natural setting, all participating musicians will be performing in a true unplugged fashion. With just the acoustic sounds of vocals and instruments, each performance space creates an intimate “outdoor listening-room” where both artist and audience can commune in nature. See below for the artist lineup, park map, and park rules.

The Tregaron Conservancy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 2006. The mission of the Tregaron Conservancy is to steward and maintain its 13-acre historic landscape for all to enjoy. The Conservancy is dedicated to renewing the landscape sustainably, to ensuring a healthy plant and wildlife habitat, and to educating and inspiring our visitors.

The Tregaron Conservancy is located in Northwest Washington, D.C. between the Woodley Park and Cleveland Park neighborhoods, with two main entrances:

  • Macomb Street Entrance, 3100 Macomb Street NW: gate located just east of the Washington International School’s driveway, one long block west of Connecticut Avenue NW. Follow the path, turn left up the side of the driveway, and follow signs to the Conservancy’s trails.
  • Klingle Road Entrance, 3000 block of Klingle Road NW (GPS address: Across the street from 3031 Klingle Road NW): gate located just east of the intersection of Klingle and Woodley Roads NW.

The nearest metro stop is Cleveland Park (Red Line).

The Tregaron Conservancy has the following Park Rules to keep in mind as you plan your visit:

  • Trails are mulched and some feature rustic stairways and stepping-stones. The terrain features elevation changes and uneven areas. The park is not wheelchair-accessible. Visitors assume all risk of injury.
  • Dogs are welcome but must be leashed and under owner control at all times. Please “leave no trace” and clean up after your pet.
  • Bikes and motorized vehicles are not permitted.
  • The landscape is fragile. Please be gentle on the land. Do not remove or attach anything to trees or other vegetation. Do not walk through garden beds or planted meadow areas. Walk only on turf and marked trails/footpaths and do not create new trails.
  • The Washington International School maintains a campus adjacent to the Conservancy, at the Estate’s hilltop, that is closed to the public. There is no fence between the Conservancy and School property; please observe the School’s posted signs.

Please note that for this event, three of the artist locations will be on the lawn—see Park Map above. Feel free to bring a blanket or small lawn chair.
