At the annual Smithsonian Folklife Festival, you will find many exemplary practitioners of diverse, authentic, living traditions—both old and new. The goal of the Festival is to strengthen and preserve these traditions by presenting them on the National Mall. Tradition-bearers and the public can connect with and learn from one another and, in a respectful way, begin to understand cultural differences and similarities.

Festival hours are 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with special events taking place most evenings beginning at 7 pm.

Visit the official website for additional details.
