This August, National Harbor in the Washington, DC, area and Peterson Companies will introduce Harbor Dome, a new and unique special events venue. The geodesic structure launches Friday, August 18 as Harbor Dome: Summer Snow Globe. The one-of-a-kind construction will accommodate 500 inside, and an additional 300 outside, with a lineup of dynamic programming including craft cocktails, live music and real snow.

The initial iteration of the Harbor Dome will aim to give guests a welcome respite from the summer heat. The fully functional snow globe will operate as a bar and lounge with nightly entertainment. It will be decorated in an icy white and silver color palette with multiple bars and sleek lounge seating inside. The temperature will be kept at 64 degrees, and regular dustings of snow will fall from the ceiling to realistically simulate winter in August. Visitors looking to cool down this summer will find a selection of specially created cocktails and an exciting musical lineup featuring recognized bands and DJs. Those who find it too chilly inside can step out and continue to enjoy food, drinks and even play a round of snowball cornhole on the accompanying lawn while they thaw.

“The space offers us an opportunity to showcase the different ways in which we can produce special events,” said Rachel Ball, director of events and business development for National Harbor, in a written release. “We look forward to activating Harbor Dome throughout the year with exciting, surprising programming and think Summer Snow Globe is the perfect way to kick it off.”

Harbor Dome: Summer Snow Globe will open to the public for twelve days only, from August 18 through September 4. The venue is a 21 and over space, and regular admission is $10.00. Admission to highlighted live music events is $25 and tickets can be pre-purchased at Eventbrite.
