Weekend Watch: Folklife Festival on the Mall

Filed Under:

No big mystery about what gets my vote for this weekend's family fun: As a fifth-generation native Texan, I have to recommend heading down to the National Mall for the Smithsonian Folklife Festival. This year's exhibits, food, music, and live performance are centered around Texas, Bhutan, and the history and achievements of NASA.

The festival runs now through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day, with evening events starting at 6:00 - and again during the same hours July 2-6 to coincide with next week's Independence Day stuff on the Mall.

Check out this blurb on the festival's website about highlights for children and families. And by all means, take metro! Parking is just about nonexistent.
