Visitors may enjoy an entire evening of activities in the park on concert nights. The Glen Echo Café on park grounds offers salads, wraps, sandwiches and snacks to provide the perfect summer picnic dinner in the park's picnic grove. And the historic Dentzel carousel operates during these events as well, giving visitors a rare chance for a night-time ride on the carousel ($1.25 per ride). There is room for dancing in the Pavilion, and dancers are welcome at all concerts.
In addition to the Thursday evening concerts, a Family Jazz Day will be held on Sunday, July 20, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. This special afternoon features the U.S. Army Blues Band, the Blues Alley Youth Ensemble and other youth jazz bands. Family Jazz Day is presented in collaboration with Blues Alley.
