Smithsonian Folklife Festival 2016

June 29, 2016 - July 4, 2016

Every summer, the Smithsonian Institute takes over part of the National Mall for the Folklife Festival. This year’s event focuses on and celebrates resilient communities across the globe, with special emphasis on the Basque Country of Spain. Come check out how the Basque people cook, dance, and speak the Euskera language as a way of preserving their culture. There will be plenty of artisan booths to browse and vendors selling traditional food and rioja wine.
