The West Park Arts Fest is excited to announce Philadelphia’s first ‘Funkfest at the West Park Arts Fest’ Philadelphia’s only funk music fest, showcasing an impressive lineup of bands from Philly’s growing Funk scene, and headlined by none other than Philly’s own Breakwater.

FunkFest will include a dynamic range of funk-inspired music from Jazz-Funk and Fusion, to Rock and Soul. Badd Kitti (aka Dianne Brieze Thompson) is also the festival curator and host. Performances begin at 1pm and continue to 6pm ending with Breakwater. A large crowd is expected so come early and bring your lawn chairs.

Attendees of all ages will enjoy stages of culturally diverse performances by some of the area’s most talented dancers, musicians, and vocalists. The event will engage the young and seasoned in dance, art making, and other activities including narrated historical trolley tours through the Centennial District. Two performance stages, work by local artists, unique art installations, an Art/Craft Market, and the offerings of diverse food vendors, make the West Park Arts Fest a must-attend event.
