Happenings at the Harman Happy Hours

Monthly free performance events held in the Forum of Sidney Harman Hall at 610 F St. NW, Washington, D.C. from 5:30 – 6:45 p.m.

Come directly from work, get a drink at the Forum bar and transition into the evening with a unique mix of performances.

All performances are FREE and reservations are not required. Happy Hours will end with enough time for you to get dinner and return to see that evening’s production 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.
