Summer is here and we are ready to celebrate! Join us all summer long as we get AMPED in the Park with a live music series. Enjoy music, food, outdoor games, free swag, and more. Bring your lawn chairs and picnic blankets as we celebrate summertime at Merriweather District.

Rare Essence, Washington’s premier Go‑Go band for more than four decades is a DC institution that has built a devoted fan base that spans multiple generations, drawn to the indigenous funk sired in the mid ‘70s by the late Godfather of Go-Go, Chuck Brown.
