Thanks to warm weather, over a hundred talented artisans and performers, and all our sponsors, we enjoyed another beautiful day of the Folklife Festival on the National Mall. From building boats to building beats, from marching bands to Latin jazz, there is truly something for everyone.
Please post your own memories and moments from the Folklife Festival with the hashtag #2016Folklife, or add your photos to our Flickr pool.
The final show on the Ralph Rinzler Concert Stage begins early at 4:15 p.m., featuring Basque band Korrontzi, Armenian youth group TmbaTa, and Filipino American multi-instrumentalist Low Leaf. We’ll see you there!
