Hylton Center and COVID

Fall 2020 Update

After much careful consideration in coordination with George Mason University, the Hylton Center made the difficult decision to suspend our presentation of traditional, live, professional performances inside our spaces through the end of 2020. Although the season will not begin this fall as we had originally envisioned, we are working with the artists who were supposed to grace our stages, in an effort to bring them back in the future.

Explore the reimagined 10th Anniversary Season which includes this fall's virtual programming and in-person outdoor performances as well as the Spring 2021 season.
