The Smithsonian Folklife Festival is an annual celebration of communities and cultures in the United States and around the world. The free event takes place on the National Mall for two weeks around the Fourth of July.
This year we highlight cultural heritage enterprises in Armenia and Catalonia through food, craft, music, and dance. Experience human towers with the Catalans, Armenian craft and cooking demonstrations, and much more.
