Washington’s airports are a popular venue for exciting events from time to time. You may be surprised at what you will see when you travel through Washington Dulles International and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airports. From exciting performances by local artists, to opportunities for an insider’s view, a surprising treat awaits you!
We also offer the opportunity to create a private special event at the airport for your child. Birthday Party rentals are available in the Terminal on select Saturdays.
