The Festival is presented on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., by the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage and co-sponsored by the National Park Service. Admission is always free.
In 2020, the Festival will return with its usual two weeks of programming, exploring the ways people use cultural knowledge to address environmental change. Programs will focus on communities in Benin, Brazil, the Baltic nations, Louisiana, and more to be announced.
