“The DC Funk Parade is BACK in Festival format on Saturday”

From a press release:

“The DC Funk Parade is BACK in Festival format on Saturday, August 6th, 2022 from 11 AM to 5 PM! Originally slated for Saturday, May 7th, 2022, this historic 8th Annual DC music celebration was previously postponed due to poor weather conditions. The event’s producer, The MusicianShip, is eager for all District residents & visitors to usher in the much anticipated in-person return to the U Street corridor amplified by the local music scene and bustling businesses to the rich music history that many refer to as Black Broadway.

‘The Magic of Music’ will be an authentic cultural experience that you don’t want to miss. Music-lovers of all ages can bounce between four historic U Street Corridor sites from 11 AM – 5 PM: Funk Parade’s Main Stage at The African-American Civil War Memorial, the Soul Station at Lee’s Flower Shop, the Community Corner at The Reeves Center, and Beats & Brews at Right Proper Brewing Company. The four sites will feature live, outdoor music from the likes of local favorites & rising stars like Autumn LaBella, Roquois, DJ ZO, Uncle Mary, Nia Monaé, Naptown Brass Band, and Critical Condition Band! (View Festival Information).”
