Upcoming Events

As the community recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic, the Washington Park Conservancy is planning a carefully selected schedule of activities for the Park’s 2022 season.  We will be working to develop and promote Park events with neighborhood and community partners.  Because programming decisions may need to be made or changed  on short notice, please check our Events Calendar regularly for the latest event information.
