At the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, experience living traditions from around the world. Our goal is to work with communities to strengthen and preserve their cultures and share them with you on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

A weekend of performances on the National Mall will illuminate the social power of music. On the evening of Saturday, June 29, we will launch with a concert featuring artists from the Smithsonian Folkways Recordings roster and beyond. On the morning of Sunday, June 30, we will present a family concert celebrating the life and legacy of Pete Seeger, who would have been 100 years old in 2019.
