Perchfest Spring Edition
During Perchfest Spring Edition guests can enjoy a sneak peek of the 18-hole miniature putt putt course at The Perch in Tysons, Virginia. The Perch is a 2.5-acre public park 11 stories in the sky anchored by Starr Hill Biergarten, an amphitheater stage, games plaza, sculpture garden, great lawn, dog park – and now, Perch Putt and food trucks will join the scene.
This weekend celebration of Perchfest Spring Edition takes place May 21st 12pm-11pm and May 22nd 12pm-5pm. Guests can enjoy putt putt, live music, community vendors, lawn games, appearances by local personalities, and support the festival’s charity partner, Best Buddies of Northern Virginia and DC. This free event is open to the public, but space is limited and guests must register in advance. Donations to Best Buddies are encouraged and can be made directly through their website. Guests can expect the same energy and vibe as last fall’s Perchfest, when Capital One Center opened The Perch with a weekend festival attracting 10,000 attendee -- now with the addition of Perch Putt!
Perchfest will offer a “Kids Party” from 12pm-3pm on Saturday, with children's events featuring face painting and a puppy party with Wolf Trap Animal Rescue on the Great Lawn. Capital One Center partners such as The Watermark Hotel and Capital One Hall will be on site to amplify the community impact of this unique gathering place in the heart of Northern Virginia.
For Perchfest guests looking for a VIP Experience #LikeNoOther, The Watermark Hotel is offering exclusive VIP packages which include special access to festival perks, including an upgraded suite overlooking The Perch, welcome amenities from Starr Hill Biergarten and Wren, and a future gift card to Perch Putt’s Food Trucks.
