    BUMPER CAR PAVILION

    The Bumper Car Pavilion was built in 1923 as a cornerstone attraction of Glen Echo Park during the amusement Park era. With great views of the Park, this versatile facility is a unique setting for wedding receptions, private dances, bar/bat mitzvahs, fundraisers, reunions, and corporate events.

    The Bumper Car Pavilion started out as one of Glen Echo Park's main attractions and is now one of its most popular rental venues. With its old amusement park charm, it’s a great place for weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, and company or family picnics. Enough space for 200 guests with a dance floor, it may be the perfect location for your next event.
