Carousel Day 2018

Join us for the opening of the carousel's 98th season!

 

Saturday, April 28, 2018

11am - 4pm

 

Our fun-filled annual event gets a new name this year. As many of you know, this festival used to be called Family Day, but Carousel Day better represents what the day is all about -- celebrating our beautifully-renovated, historic Dentzel carousel and all the wonderful arts programs in the Park.  

 

The carousel will open for its 98th season in Glen Echo Park on Carousel Day!  The event also offers a full day (11:00 am to 4:00 pm) of FREE activities for throughout Glen Echo Park, including live music & other performances, face painting, storytelling, and carousel themed crafts.

 

The carousel operates from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., $1.25 per ride.                                                     

                 

FREE PERFORMANCES AND ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:
