Here’s our guide to the Dan + Claudia Zanes performance at Ringgold Park.

This performance is a place for all to sing, dance, and respond to the music without restraint or reservation.

Fête de la Musique began in the summer of 1982 in Paris, France, and has become a world-wide event, celebrated in over 100 countries and 5 continents.

For the 7th year, Fête de la Musique will be celebrated in the South End, with live musicians filling the streets with a wide variety of music for all ages. Area businesses, organizations and neighborhood groups have partnered to deliver a diverse line-up of music to be freely enjoyed by the neighborhood, visitors and passersby.

This year, we will be celebrating in five South End parks: BCA Plaza, Frieda Garcia, Hayes Park, Ringgold Park, and Union Park.
