They’ll be dancin’ in the streets!
Glen Park Festival
All day Sunday May 1st 10 a.m to 4:30 p.m.
there’ll be music… sweet, sweet music…
Come out to the Glen Park Festival for the fun,Â the sun and the beautiful neighborhood vibe, and a cavalcade of great bands mc’d by man-of-all-seasons Misisipi Mike.
Dozens of Glen Park volunteers have put this festival together for your pleasure, and you’ll find Diamond and Wilder Streets lined with art, food and a panoply of other booths. Activities for the kids on Wilder, including our own Walker Brents telling stories at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
Bands on the mainstage will include Orange Sherbet, Los Train Wreck, Misisipi Mike and the Midnight Gamblers, Jinx Jones and the High Tones and Valerie Quevedo and her Cincopaters.
It’ll be a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Call friends and tell them to come see Glen Park at its best!
Don’t forget to drift up the block during the festivities to Bird & Beckett, for a tribute to tango singer Carlos Gardel, Irish writers illuminating the language and, to top it all off, a few arias and a little light opera!

Our events are put on under the umbrella of the nonprofit Bird & Beckett Cultural Legacy Project (the "BBCLP"). That's how we fund our ambitious schedule of 300 or so concerts and literary events every year.
The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
