Kennedy Center Group Sales

The Kennedy Center is the nation’s premier destination for the arts – and for you and your group, we offer a wonderful opportunity to see, hear, and experience the world’s best theater, ballet, dance, symphony, chamber music, jazz, family entertainment, and more!

It's never too early to contact the Group Sales office; group ticket requests can be made as soon as our upcoming season is announced each spring. Many of our performances sell out fast, so contact us now!

What Is A Group?

If you are composed of 20 or more members (or 15 for Shear Madness and 10 for Washington National Opera), then you are a group!
