The Folklife Festival is a unique Washington D.C. tradition and is the largest annual cultural event in the city. It's a living cultural exhibition that celebrates the heritage of different states, regions and international communities, and includes music and dance performances, craft demonstrations, storytelling, exhibits, workshops and traditional cooking demonstrations. Festival-goers should be prepared to spend plenty of time outdoors in the hottest part of the year, but visiting the air-conditioned Smithsonian Museums is a good way to cool off and further indulge all cultural impulses.
