April 27 – Spring Revels at Glen Echo

Procession at Glen Echo Page (2021)
Join Washington Revels as we chase away Winter and celebrate the seasonal re-opening of the 101-year-old Dentzel Carousel at Glen Echo Park Partnership’s annual Carousel Day!

At the start of the event, we will provide a festive musical procession throughout the park. Then, at 1:00 pm, the Spring 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 in the Spanish Ballroom. This family-friendly show will include many opportunities for you to join in the singing, followed by some joyous Maypole dancing (and you will be invited to join in).

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.

Date/Time: April 27, 2024 (Parade at 11:00am; Spring Revels at 1:00pm)
Tickets: FREE (Tickets only required to ride the Carousel)
