Smithsonian Folklife Festival 2012

How’s your summer coming along? I’ve been working, traveling and enjoying mine.

Tomorrow the Smithsonian Folklife Festival kicks off another year of fun and education.  It is held in Washington, DC on the National Mall June 27-July 1 and July 4 through July 8.  Admission is free and the activities numerous.  Each year those smarty-pants folks who run the Smithsonian come up with three themes and present us with new ways to see the world.  This year:

Campus and Community – This year marks the 150th anniversary of the founding of land grant universities and the USDA

Cititfied – Arts and Creativity east of the Anacostia River looks at creativity, community and identity.

Creativity and Crisis – Celebrating 25th anniversary of the AIDS memorial quilt.

Get out and see what the festival is all about. Happenings include live concerts, interactive presentations and delicious food.
