“Dance to the Future” - Family Late Skate in Anacostia Park

  • Anacostia Park Skating Pavilion (map)

Dance to the Future!

Held on selected Saturday evenings, the Anacostia Park and Community Collaborative and the National Park Service host FREE community events featuring skate rentals, music, a live DJ, arts and crafts and other activities. 

These Late Skate events are reminiscent of the 1968 “Summer in the Parks” programs which connected urban residents with parks through music, or nature activities and sports. A special display about Summer in the Parks will be featured at each event.  Bring your charcoal grill and cooler and spend an evening!

In addition to skating, this evening will feature hand dancing, DJ Spirit, live music by the band “Bela Donna,” and park visions for the future.
