Smithsonian Folklife Festival

The Festival is held outdoors on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., between the Smithsonian museums.

There are plenty of great activities planned. Here is a partial list of the evening music/dance concert highlights:

== Bhangra and Giddha: Folk Dances of Punjab
== Mariachi Tradicional Los Tíos, Hamac Caziim, Grupo de Fandango de Artesa Los Quilamos
== A Tribute to Haiti featuring Boukman Eksperyans, with special guest Tines Salvant
== Halau Ho'omau, Hakka Association in Washington, Hakka TungFa Chorus of Greater Washington

There is no admission charge. Visitors should dress for hot and humid weather. Parking around the Mall is extremely limited, so visitors are advised to use Metrorail. The Smithsonian station (Mall exit) is at the Festival site. Federal Triangle and National Archives stations are close by. For general Smithsonian visitor information, call 202.633.1000 (voice) or 202.357.1729 (TTY).
