Once again, Artivate is proud to sponsor performances by our artists at Glen Echo Park’s Carousel Day, a family festival celebrating the opening of the Park’s historic Dentzel Carousel! The event features a full day of FREE activities for families throughout the Park, including live music & dance performances, face painting, open studios and galleries, and more.
Look for these Artivate artists performing throughout the day in the Bumper Car Pavilion and the Spanish Ballroom:
World-renowned Barynya presents Russian, Cossack, Ukrainian, Jewish, and Gypsy Roma traditional dancing, music and song at 1pm and 3pm in the Spanish Ballroom.
Parent Choice Award-winning and multiple Wammie-nominated duo Cantaré (vocalist Cecilia Esquivel and guitarist Dani Cortaza) will bring the beautiful music and rhythms of Latin American to the Park with performances at 1:30pm and 2:30pm in the Bumper Car Pavillion.
Dynamic taiko artist Mark H Rooney returns to Glen Echo’s Carousel Day for a pair of interactive traditional Japanese drumming performances at 11:30am and 12:30pm in the Bumper Car Pavillion.
Bring your family and enjoy the festivities while learning about cultures from around the world! Find a schedule for Carousel Day with a map of the park here and directions and parking information, here.
