April 30 – Carousel Day at Glen Echo

Procession at Glen Echo Page (2021)
Join Washington Revels as we chase away Winter and celebrate the seasonal re-opening of Glen Echo Park’s 101-year-old Dentzel Carousel! We will kick off the day with a festive procession throughout the park, beginning at 11:00am, followed by some joyous Maypole dancing (and you will be invited to join in). Then, at 12:30pm, the Washington Revels chorus of adults, teens, tweens, and children will be joined by the Whiskey Before Breakfast Band (and friends!), and some merry mummers, to present a festive celebration of Spring in the Bumper Car Pavilion. This family-friendly show will include many opportunities for you to join in the singing.

There will be many other activities throughout the day, including a series of pop-up performances in front of the Washington Revels Office by some of our ensembles and friends. And area morris dancers will be on hand to join in the celebration.

All are welcome to this free, family-friendly event—performances by many other local artists will take place throughout the day, as well as kids’ arts & crafts, open artist studios & galleries, and much more. And, of course, you are invited to ride the historic carousel.
