Happenings at the Harman

Happenings Lunchtime and Happy Hour events are held in the Forum of Sidney Harman Hall at 610 F St. NW, Washington, D.C. All performances are FREE and reservations are not required. Performances will last less than an hour.
There is no better time to discover new art than in the middle of the week. There is no better place to do so than at STC. Every Happenings event features a different type of locally grown performance. With musicians, dancers, actors, puppeteers and genre-mixers you are sure to leave feeling inspired and excited.

Happenings Lunchtime 
At noon every Wednesday, from September through May, bring your lunch and we will bring your shot of culture. For five years Happenings at the Harman has been providing audiences’ relief from their work-day and filling their afternoon with wonder.

Happenings Happy Hours
Join us for post-work Happenings Happy Hours at 5:30 p.m. in select months. Come directly from work, get a drink at the Forum bar and transition into the evening with a unique mix of performances.

Official liquor sponsor of Happenings Happy Hour:
Svedka Vodka
