14th and U Street
Funk Parade is the quintessential celebration of all things D.C. as “Washington” slowly takes over more neighborhoods and cultural landmarks of the District. Go-go, soul, jazz and hip-hop blare up and down U Street from stages, marching bands and more. Food, funk, family and friends are the main concerns for this day.
Performers this year include The Chuck Brown Band, Aaron Abernathy, Deacon Izzy & The Congregation, Mark Meadows, Jenna Camille & The Free Radicals and Shacara Rogers among many others.
