All About the Funk Parade

Funk Parade is a one-of-a-kind day fair, parade and music festival in Washington DC's U. Street neighborhood.

This year the Funk happens Saturday, May 11th, 2019.

Funk Parade celebrates DC's vibrant music and arts, the history of Black Broadway, and the Spirit of Funk that brings us all together. From our first year in 2014 to now, hundreds of thousands of Washingtonians from all corners of the District have come together for the Funk Parade. We are excited for you to participate, to celebrate, #FunkPowered.
