5th Annual Funk Parade

May 12, 2018
Starting: 1:00 PM

In honor of U Street’s diverse cultural history, people from all over the District come together to celebrate the spirit of funk at this free, one-of-a-kind parade, street fair and music festival. Watch the street (and side streets) come to life with live musical performances and entertainment from a variety of vibrant dancers, marching bands and visual artists. Get an education on go-go music, made famous by DC’s own Chuck Brown, and then groove to Latin hip-hop, funk brass and frenetic DJ sets, among many activations. Good to know: There will be plenty of opportunities to fuel up from street-side food and drink vendors so you can funk out all day and night long.
