Hidden near the edge of Clintonville’s labyrinthine Glen Echo Park is massive tunnel decorated with a sprawling bird-themed mural. And while the tunnel is a cool enough secret, we have an even better one for you.

Annually, the tunnel is home to the Bird Tunnel Party, a large dance music gathering held over Labor Day weekend.
