Step into a Winter Wonderland inside of Nationals Park by heading to the District’s first Enchant festival right here in Capitol Riverfront. Celebrate the Christmas season for 32 nights as the stadium becomes the area’s largest holiday light show. From November 22nd to December 29th, Enchant offers something for everyone. Skate through a light maze that transforms the outfield, or fill up on delightful food and drinks from some of DC’s favorite vendors while taking in the immersive light sculptures across the park. The fun doesn’t end there – local artists will take the Enchant Stage live to kick up the holiday spirit while guests shop for the perfect gifts at the Enchant Market. Open at 4pm daily for its duration, Enchant is the best destination to shake up your holiday season.
