Funk Parade is this Saturday: here's the route map and event schedule

The Funk Parade is back this Saturday, and they just released the route of the parade, the locations of their day fair (with lots of vendors, music, arts and more) as well as the venues and lineups for the many bands playing as part of the festival.

The parade itself starts at 4pm and goes from 6th and T NW, west to Vermont, up to U and then ends at 12th Street. It was a blast last time, a participatory musical joy-fest.

The Day Fair, which runs from noon to 7pm, is really fun too -- lots of artists and musicians doing all kinds of things, food, drinks, neat things to buy, local nonprofits and a lot more. Bands play at various stages the whole time, including go-go legends Rare Essence with hip hop legend DJ Kool, local hip-hopper Kokayi, indie band RDGLDGRN and a ton more. The full lineup for the Day Fair is here.

After the parade, there's a music fest from 7-10 pm at venues around the area, as well. Here's the lineup for that.
