Funk Parade 2019 takes place on Saturday, May 11th 2019. Funk Parade is DC's largest all-day celebration of music, dance and culture taking place along the historic U Street Corridor. The festival is made up of the mighty Funk Parade itself that winds through the neighborhood & outdoor stages hosting over 50 performers throughout the day. Funk Parade is a celebration for everyone: all ages, races, cultural backgrounds, sexual identities and walks of life. Funk is the subatomic particle of love that makes you want to move and enjoy the company of all humans. Funk Parade is also mostly free and affordable to all.

In 2018 The MusicianShip took over the stewardship of the festival in order to help support their mission of providing free mentorship and music education for almost 2,000 DC youth. Proceeds from the festival provide sustainability for one of the city's favorite music festival and provides free music education for our city's youth! Funk Parade will be a crucial connection for our students to the professional music community in DC and around the world. To donate to Funk Parade, simply text: MUSICHELPS to 44-321!

  • Festival Stages throughout the U St Corridor!
  • 100+ Artists from DC and Nationwide
