The countdown begins for the 2022 Smithsonian Folklife Festival

Preparations are under way at the National Mall, Washington DC

After a two-year hiatus, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival returns to the National Mall this summer,
June 22–27 and June 30–July 4. The featured programs this year are “Earth Optimism × Folklife:
Inspiring Conservation Communities” and “United Arab Emirates: Living Landscape | Living Memory.”


Over two weeks, visitors can enjoy music performances, craft workshops, cooking demonstrations,
hands-on activities, and more—all free, and a selection of events livestreaming worldwide.


We’re excited to take part in this annual celebration of culture of, by, and for the people, and we invite
you to join us in Washington, D.C., and beyond.
