http://ow.ly/Utje30jZ9tk Unidos da Filadelfia is a community based samba school that is modeled after the Carnaval Parade Organizations of Rio de Janeiro and Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. But you may have also seen “”their dedicated instructor and several of their former members on stage during one of the many amazing Carnavale productions that Phillybloco host throughout the city.
For this year we wanted to start the Clark Park Music & Arts Festival with something completely different! And after discussing the possibilities with Unidos da Filadelfia, we were loving the prospects of batucada, samba, reggae, xote, and other rhythm variations that these amazing percussionists would bring to the dog bowl. And we are pleased to officially announce that this year’s Clark Park Fest will begin with one big drum procession!”

About Clark Park Festivals

Clark Park Music and Arts community has been putting on festivals in Clark Park in West Philadelphia for over 40 years. The Festival traditionally happens on the Saturday closest to the Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox annually. The festival is time to celebrate West Philly generally and includes both rock and non-rock acts, kids activities, arts and crafts and vendors. A Little Bit of History… Since 1970, the Clark Park Music and Arts Festival has been a neighborhood tradition at 43rd and Chester Ave. The Festivals provide an excellent forum for residents to meet their neighbors and benefit from the artistic wealth of Philadelphia. Responding to the needs of a changing community, the Festival has grown in scope. Today the Festival includes children’s events and activities, arts and crafts vending, a greater diversity of performances to include all kinds of music, dance and theater, and a chance for non profit organizations to reach out to the neighborhood about all sorts of issues. Volunteers of all kinds from anywhere are encouraged to participate.
