Funk Parade is DC's own celebration of its music, art and culture. It's grown faster than anyone imagined: This year we expect over 70,000 participants from every corner of the city.

We really need your support this year.  Sponsorships and grants can't keep up with the demands of the event. Your contribution is essential to making this happen. Last year, Washingtonians helped raise almost $20,000 for Funk Parade through Indiegogo.

Funk Parade 2017 is on May 6. It will feature over 150 hours of live music and dance programming, art installations, large-scale activations and more. Most of the funds we raise through this campaign helps pay the artists. Funk Parade is organized and run entirely community volunteers -- not a penny goes to the organizers.
