The Smithsonian Folklife Festival is just over a week away, but the preparations on the National Mall are under way in earnest.
This year’s three mainstays are “Hungarian Heritage;” “One World, Many Voices,” about endangered languages and culture, and “The Will to Adorn,” about African American style and identity. The festival runs from June 26-June 30 and July 3-July 7.
The organizers likely are having to build in some preparation time because of this ridiculous weather (Hot! Rainy! Cold! Beautiful! Overcast!). But as long as they save us some goulash at the Hungarian tent, we’re good.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
