History meets a diverse present and vibrant future at Glen Echo Park, with its antique carousel, social dances, public festivals and music events, live theater and puppetry, summer camps, classes, and more. The Partnership is both a presenter and a collaborator, working with a wide variety of arts organizations and artists to offer programs for 170,000 people of all ages each year at this unique historic site. It also sponsors artist-led projects and events that combine history, the environment, and the arts to reflect and educate the diverse community it serves -- and everyone can access park programs through subsidies and scholarships. Glen Echo Park provides more than a welcoming experience for artists and art lovers; it offers a refuge for all who enjoy its rich and varied offerings.
