2018 Labor Day Weekend Events Washington D.C.

Labor Day weekend is a time when we celebrate by not performing labor. That is, unless you have chores you really want to catch up on. For most of us, it’s a long weekend to enjoy the end of the summer season.  Even if the warm weather doesn’t come to an abrupt stop, we do see outdoor events begin to slow down, so it sometimes feels like a last hurrah when it comes to getting outside and feeling those sunrays. That said, here are some things to do in Washington D.C. for Labor Day 2018.

Outdoor Activities Labor Day 2018

With Labor Day being the unofficial end of summer, you’ll want to do as many outdoor activities as you can handle. Here are our top picks.

This renaissance fair does have dates through October, so if it’s not your top pick, no problem. It’s always exciting to go over a big holiday, especially because tickets early in the season are priced a bit lower. You can find a list of entertainment and special events at the Festival website.

Virginia Scottish Games Festival

While the renaissance fair will take you into the past, the Scottish games will transport you to a different country. At least in spirit. You don’t have to be Scottish to enjoy the event. Highlights include Scottish-themed musical performances, the comedy of the Sterling Swordplayers, traditional Scottish games competitions and more.

National Symphony Orchestra Concert

Though many local events take place in Virginia, this annual event is one that will leave you directly in the heart of D.C. On the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol to be exact. It’s a free event that will be taking place on Sunday, Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. Keep that in mind as it’s a day before Labor Day.
