Funk Parade Happening This Saturday, May 3rd


The Funk Parade, and associate activities, is scheduled for this Saturday, May 3rd. Below are the details distributed by the organizers.

The festivities – all free! – are as follows:

*DAY FAIR *(noon-5 pm) – music, dance, art and conviviality throughout U Street, from 16th to 9th. Stroll, hum, dance, and enjoy! *(neighbor note: U Street won’t be closed and parking is not affected!)*

*FUNK PARADE *(5-7 pm) – a joyful, collaborative musical procession that invites you to participate. Come be a part of the Funk Parade! Gathering on Vermont between U and V, the parade moves west on V to Ben Ali Way. Short, sweet, soulful and superlative, great for kids from 3 to 93! (*neighbor note: this is going to be awesome*.)

*MUSIC FESTIVAL *(7-10 pm) – Over twenty great local bands play music from all over the world inside a dozen U Street venues, from Solly’s, Tropicalia and DC9 to U Street Music Hall, Bohemian Caverns, Patty Boom Boom and more. (*neighbor note: All music will be inside venues, and the festival ends at
10 pm. In time to get the kids to bed!*)

*This event is a PHENOMENAL collaboration of over 200 local businesses, community groups, musicians and civic leaders, including the U Street Neighborhood Association, ANC 1B, and many small and locally-owned neighborhood businesses*. Big thanks to everyone who has helped Funk Parade get this far. We hope you all can come out and enjoy the day with your neighbors and friends!
