Fall Frolic 2019



Fall Frolic -- on Saturday, October 26, 2019 -- is the Glen Echo Park Partnership's annual Halloween-themed family event. It's open to the public, and visitors of all ages are invited to the Park to explore the arts through hands-on crafts, Halloween activities, trick-or-treating and visiting open studios. It’s a safe and fun Halloween event with something for everyone!


Our Halloween festivities take place from 1pm to 4pm.


Check back closer to the event date for our schedule of activities!


Pick a pumpkin from the Pumpkin Patch and decorate it at one of our craft tables. ($2/pumpkin)  We'll have face painting and other free craft activities and trick-or-treating!


Adults will enjoy strolling through the Park’s open studios and galleries, including Glen Echo Pottery, the Art Glass Center, Photoworks, Yellow Barn Studio & Gallery, SilverWorks, and more.


The Halloween celebration will conclude with a costume parade through the Park at 3:30p.m. (weather-permitting)
